Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Heart failure is a clinical syndrome that may result from different disease states or conditions that injure the myocardium. The activation of circulating neurohormones, particularly aldosterone, may play a pivotal role in left ventricular (LV) remodelling. The Randomized Aldactone Evaluation Study and Eplerenone Post-Acute Myocardial Infarction Heart Failure Efficacy and Survival trial have emphasised the clinical importance of aldosterone. This review addresses some of the proposed mechanisms of LV remodelling in heart failure.
