This study evaluates needleless liquid jet method and compares it with three common experimental methods: (1) intramuscular injection (IM), (2) left ventricular intracavitary infusion (LVIC), and (3) LV intracavitary infusion with aortic and pulmonary occlusion (LVIC-OCCL). Two protocols were executed. First (n = 24 rats), retention of dye was evaluated 10 min after delivery in an acute model. The acute study revealed the following: significantly higher dye retention (expressed as % myocardial cross-section area) in the left ventricle in both the liquid jet [52 ± 4] % and LVIC-OCCL [58 ± 3] % groups p < 0.05 compared with IM [31 ± 8] % and LVIC [35 ± 4] %. In the second (n = 16 rats), each animal received adeno-associated virus encoding green fluorescent protein (AAV.EGFP) at a single dose with terminal 6-week endpoint. In the second phase with AAV.EGFP at 6 weeks post-delivery, a similar trend was found with liquid jet [54 ± 5] % and LVIC-OCCL [60 ± 8] % featuring more LV expression as compared with IM [30 ± 9] % and LVIC [23 ± 9] %. The IM and LVIC-OCCL cross sections revealed myocardial fibrosis. With more detailed development in future model studies, needleless liquid jet delivery offers a promising strategy to improve direct myocardial delivery.
