PMID:  11407109     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Abstract/OtherAbstract:
beta-blocker therapy in heart failure offers the possibility of arresting or reversing the progressive deterioration in this clinical syndrome. While the mechanism is unclear, improvement in cardiac function has been apparent in virtually every study. Clinical results have shown less consistent improvement. Decrease in hospitalization has been noted, but large-scale clinical trials are underway to assess the effect of beta-blockers on mortality.
