BACKGROUND Plasma levels of adiponectin are decreased in patients with ischemic heart disease, but increased in patients with heart failure (HF). The source of increased adiponectin levels in patients with HF remains unknown. This study examined whether adiponectin, an adipocyte-derived protein with cardioprotective actions, is released from the heart in patients with HF. METHODS Plasma adiponectin levels sampled from the aorta, coronary sinus (CS), and peripheral vein (PV) were measure by… CONTINUE READING
