BACKGROUND Left ventricular remodeling after myocardial infarction (MI) involves the hypertrophic growth of cardiomyocytes and the accumulation of fibrillar collagen in the interstitial space. We evaluated the role of kinins in postinfarction ventricular remodeling and their potential contribution to the antiremodeling effects of ACE inhibition and… CONTINUE READING
