IMPLICATIONS: Preload-adjusted maximal power (PAMP), a load-independent contractile index in the left ventricle, could offer a solution to the problem of measuring right ventricular (RV) contractility in clinical practice. However, this study in open-chest dogs suggests that PAMP is unreliable for assessment of RV contractility because of its sensitivity to afterload changes.
