  1. Data are the mean ± SD
  2. There are no significant differences among the groups
  3. Baseline measurements are presented in absolute values as obtained 5 min after stabilization, except for dry heart weight, which was measured at the end of the experiment
  4. LV dP/dt max maximum of left ventricular derivative of pressure development
