Dietary fish oil preserves cardiac function in the hypertrophied rat heart
British Journal of Nutrition
Regular fish or fish oil intake is associated with a low incidence of heart failure clinically, and fish oil-induced reduction in cardiac remodelling seen in hypertrophy models may contribute. We investigated whether improved cardiac energy efficiency in non-hypertrophied hearts translates into attenuation of cardiac dysfunction in hypertrophied hearts. Male Wistar rats (n 33) at 8 weeks of age were sham-operated or subjected to abdominal aortic stenosis to produce pressure-overload cardiacdoi:10.1017/s0007114511005915 pmid:22067847 fatcat:nzqqq5h4lbhztdai2xfe6rrwzi
