BACKGROUND Left ventricular remodeling (LVR) is a strong predictor of cardiovascular events after myocardial infarction (MI). Although several factors have been shown to influence LVR, interindividual variability exists. Some studies have suggested that gene polymorphisms may be associated with LVR, but these studies were limited by either a retrospective… CONTINUE READING
