Graphs show the progress of left ventricular end-diastolic volume, end-diastolic dimension, end-systolic volume, end-systolic dimension, ejection fraction, and fractional shortening for both groups. Data are shown as mean ± SEM. n = 5 surviving animals per group. *p < 0.05, †p < 0.01 for intragroup comparisons by paired t test. Intergroup comparisons performed by 2-way analysis of variance. EDD = end-diastolic dimension; EDV = end-diastolic volume; EF = ejection fraction; ESD = end-systolic dimension; ESV = end-systolic volume; FS = fractional shortening; PreInj = pre-injection; other abbreviations as in Figure 1.
