Preservation of cardiac function and energy reserve by the angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor quinapril during postmyocardial infarction remodeling in the rat.

Abstract:

PURPOSE: Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors show beneficial long-term hemodynamic effects in chronically infarcted hearts. The purpose of this study was to test whether prevention of the deterioration of mechanical function by ACE inhibitors is related to beneficial effects on high-energy phosphate metabolism that is deranged in heart failure. METHODS: Twelve-week old rats were randomly assigned to ligation of the left coronary artery [mycardial infarction (MI)] or sham operation ...
