Figure 8: Impact of GLC Receptor Antagonist on Pressure-Overloaded Heart Measured by Tissue Strain

(A) Representative images of long-axis echo recording (left panel), with cross-sectional segment synchronicity map (middle panels), and radial and longitudinal endocardial strain (right panel). (B) Average systolic radial strain and (C) average diastolic longitudinal strain rates at week 0, 2, and 5 post-TAC from each experimental group as indicated. *p < 0.05 Control versus TAC; #p < 0.05 TAC versus TAC+REMD; $p < 0.05 Control versus TAC + REMD therapy. Abbreviations as in Figures 1 and 5.
