BACKGROUND It has been suspected for some time that patients with chronic heart failure (CHF) have abnormal muscle metabolism, so in the present study the muscle metabolism of the arm and leg were compared by (31)P magnetic resonance spectroscopy ((31)P-MRS) to examine the relationship to exercise tolerance. METHODS AND RESULTS The study group comprised 13 patients and 11 normal controls. Calf-plantar and forearm-wrist flexion were performed to evaluate the metabolic capacity assessed as the… CONTINUE READING
