Figure 2: Pressure-Volume Analyses in Monocrotaline Model

Representative examples of pressure-volume relationship for control, MCT-sham, and MCT-RD groups (A to C). RD significantly reduced RV afterload (D), without affecting RV contractility (E) and reduced RV stiffness (F). Control: n = 5, MCT-sham: n = 9, and MCT-RD: n = 9. Data are presented as mean ± SEM. One-way ANOVA followed by Bonferroni correction. Ea = RV afterload; Eed = RV stiffness; Ees = RV contractility; other abbreviations as in Figure 1.
