abstract

  • (1) Midwall left ventricular performance was higher in Dahl S than Dahl R rats on a high-salt diet; (2) this elevation was partially independent of an increase in left ventricular chamber size, an indirect measure of preload; and (3) in Dahl S rats on losartan, increased left ventricular performance is related to improved contractility, associated with a blunted development of left ventricular hypertrophy.
