Aldosterone and cardiovascular remodelling: focus on myocardial failure.

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… (More)
