Right ventricular myocardial biomarkers in human heart failure.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Right ventricular (RV) dysfunction contributes to mortality in chronic heart failure (HF). However, the molecular mechanisms of RV failure remain poorly understood, and RV myocardial biomarkers have yet to be developed. METHODS AND RESULTS We performed RNA sequencing (RNA-seq) on 22 explanted human HF RVs and 5 unused donor human heart RVs (DON… (More)
