Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Intracellular regulation of myocardial Ca(2+) has long been of interest to physiologists. The force-interval relationship provides a phenomenological approach that permits insight into aspects of calcium regulation. The response to an extrasystole is a potentiation in contractile force and the recovery in contractile force is described by the recirculation fraction (RF). The RF provides a gross estimation of calcium uptake by sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR), leading to myocardial relaxation. The current study focused on the relationship of right (RV) and left ventricular (LV) RF in canines under several contractile states. Anesthetized canines (n = 5) were catheterized for RV and LV pressure measurements. dP/dt(max) for the RV and LV was calculated for three baseline beats, one extrasystole and the first five postextrasystolic beats. The relationship between the LV dP/dt(max) and RV dP/dt(max) for all of the mentioned beats was then examined. Contractility was increased with calcium chloride and extrasystoles were delivered. Once cardiac function returned to a baseline level, contractility was reduced by increasing the concentration of isoflurane and the evaluation repeated. All ventricular contractions were controlled by RA pacing to maintain intrinsic conduction. A strong linear relationship between RV and LV dP/dt(max) (r = 0.94 +/- .06) existed for most canine's contractile states. These results build on findings in isolated hearts and demonstrate that biventricular response to extrasystoles and subsequent contractile recovery is both linear and correlated, suggesting that intracellular calcium regulation in a given heart across contractile state is static.
