  1. LVIDs – left ventricular internal diameter in systole; LVIDd – left ventricular internal diameter in diastole; %FS – percentage fractional shortening; CAP – central aortic pressure; SBP – systolic blood pressure; DBP – diastolic blood pressure; HR – heart rate; LVEDP – left ventricular end diastolic blood pressure; dP/dtmax – rate of left ventricular pressure rise; dP/dtmin – rate of left ventricular pressure fall.
  2. Data are expressed as mean ± SEM; * P < 0.05, ** P < 0.01, *** P < 0.001 compared to sham animals; # P < 0.05, ### P < 0.001 compared to MI + Veh animals.
