Does ACE inhibition limit structural changes in the heart following myocardial infarction?

Abstract

A recent series of experiments in our laboratory were designed to elucidate the cellular changes that underlie the cardiac remodelling response following myocardial infarction (MI) in the rat as well as the potential role of the renin-angiotensin system (RAS) in this response. Inhibition of the RAS interferes with cardiomyocyte hypertrophy, interstitial… (More)
