Hypothalamic dysfunction in heart failure: pathogenetic mechanisms and therapeutic implications


Neurohumoral activation is an important feature of heart failure. Recent advances in molecular biology and imaging techniques permitted a better understanding of the central role that hypothalamus plays in the modulation of dysfunctional mechanisms, as well as the occurrence of comorbidities, such as depression, in heart failure patients. This review… (More)
