Heart-type fatty acid-binding protein (H-FABP), a marker of acute myocardial infarction and a soluble cytosolic protein, may be released following left ventricular remodelling in cardiac overloaded hearts caused by hypertension, aortic regurgitation (AR) or aortic stenosis (AS). Our aim was to investigate if H-FABP levels are associated with left ventricular remodelling and clinical outcome in hypertensive patients with AR or AS. H-FABP and brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) were measured… CONTINUE READING
