BACKGROUND The development of heart failure after acute myocardial infarction (MI) may be related to alterations of left ventricular (LV) structure and function. Pathological LV remodeling may exacerbate systolic and diastolic dysfunction because increased cavity dimensions tend to increase LV wall stress. Unfortunately, many complicating factors have made it difficult to clearly define the time course of LV remodeling after myocardial infarction in patients, and the contribution of structural… CONTINUE READING
