Left ventricular remodelling after acute myocardial infarction, through long-term left ventricular chamber dilatation and increased wall stress can result in alteration of the contractile properties of the non-infarct zone, impairment of the systolic and diastolic performances of the left ventricle, and eventually congestive heart failure. Left ventricular remodelling is influenced by several factors, among which the role of systemic and tissue renin angiotensin systems is determinant… CONTINUE READING
