Does dobutamine improve ventricular function in dogs with regional myocardial dysfunction?

PMID:  12088936     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
IMPLICATIONS: We examined the effect of systemic dobutamine on regional wall motion abnormalities (RWMAs) induced by intracoronary esmolol infusion in eight anesthetized dogs. Esmolol dilated the heart and decreased regional synchrony of contraction. Dobutamine restored cardiac function but failed to correct the asynchrony of regional contraction caused by esmolol-induced RWMAs.
