Table 1 Contractility given as dP/dtmax and dP/dtmin (mm Hg/s), body weight (g) and heart weight/body weight ratio (mg/g), given as MEANS ± SEM for each group. Significant differences versus normal animals are indicated by a * (p < 0.05), while significant changes versus sham-operated rabbits are indicated by a # (p < 0.05).
