Endothelins and myocardial fibrosis.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Endothelins are associated with cardiac remodeling. These peptides are the most powerful vasoconstrictor described-whether this remodeling is a direct effect of this hormone or indirect response to a relative ischemia promoted by vasoconstrictor effect. We evaluated the role of endothelin upon myocardial fibrosis despite of its hemodynamic… (More)
