  • BACKGROUND Abnormalities of energy metabolism are often cited as key elements in the progressive worsening of left ventricular (LV) dysfunction that characterizes the heart failure (HF) state. The present study tested the hypothesis that partial inhibition of fatty acids will ameliorate the hemodynamic abnormalities associated with HF. METHODS AND RESULTS Chronic HF (LV ejection fraction 27 +/- 1%) was produced in 13 dogs by intracoronary microembolizations. Hemodynamic and angiographic… CONTINUE READING
