Effects of H2S on urine protein, blood pressure, left ventricular ejection fraction and fractional shortening in rats

Groups Urine protein (mg/L) Blood pressure (mmHg) Left ventricular ejection fraction (%) Fractional shortening (%)
Control 7.72 ± 1.16 84.74 ± 7.88 76.66 ± 5.75 45.71 ± 6.39
AAC 6.86 ± 0.77 162.70 ± 11.35* 71.05 ± 6.27 38.78 ± 7.30
AAC + H2S 9.27 ± 0.54 155.31 ± 10.02* 79.94 ± 5.33 42.58 ± 3.95
H2S 10.02 ± 2.16 95.19 ± 9.86 81.42 ± 7.14 41.06 ± 5.77

Values are expressed as mean ± SD. H2S, hydrogen sulfide; AAC, abdominal aorta coarctation. *p < 0.05 vs. control group.
