Figure 2

Pretreatment with 6-G (6 mg/kg) improved cardiac dysfunction induced by I/R. (a) EF, left ventricular ejection fraction. (b) FS, left ventricular fractional shortening. (c) LVESD, left ventricular end systolic diameter. (d) LVEDd, left ventricular end diastolic diameter. (e) +, maximum rise velocity of left intraventricular pressure. (f) −, maximum down velocity of left intraventricular pressure. Note that against the Sham group; against the I/R group.
