Chronic atrioventricular block dogs have been established as an in vivo model of drug-induced torsades de pointes arrhythmias. We compared the cardiovascular profile of the canine model with that of sham-operated animals using echocardiographic and haemodynamic methods. In the echocardiographic study, the larger diameters of the left atria, inferior vena cava and left ventricle in end-diastole in addition to greater fractional shortening, end-diastolic volume, stroke volume and ejection fraction were more often detected in the chronic atrioventricular block dogs than in the sham-operated animals. During haemodynamic examination, lower cardiac output and higher pulmonary capillary wedge pressure were detected in chronic atrioventricular block dogs more than in sham-operated animals; however, these changes were within the physiological limits, and the results suggest that the chronic atrioventricular block dogs have a pathophysiological profile of chronic compensated heart failure.
