The effects of these mechanisms go beyond the heart itself, to other organs of(More)
Systemic venous congestion has gained significant importance in the interpretation of the pathophysiology of acute heart failure, especially in the development of renal function impairment during exacerbations. In this study, we review the concept, clinical characterisation and identification of venous congestion. We update current knowledge on its(More)

We present the case of a 69 year-old male, without a previous diagnosis of(More)

The objective of this study was to determine if this relationship is maintained in a non-selected cohort of patients with HF and if it can be modified by treatment.(More)
