    Abstract: Traditional pathophysiological concepts of chronic heart failure have largely focused on the haemodynamic consequences of ventricular systolic dysfunction. How these concepts relate to the pathophysiology of diastolic heart failure, i.e., heart failure with a preserved ejection...

    Many neurohumoral factors play an important role in regulation of the cardiovascular system and in the pathophysiology of heart failure. Adrenomedullin (AM) is a potent long-lasting vasodilatory peptide that was discovered in acid extracts of human pheochromocytoma tissues. Both AM and its gene...

    Risk stratification and prevention of future cardiac events is an extremely relevant part of the daily medical practice in the large population of asymptomatic or scarcely symptomatic patients. The strategies available to this purpose encompass programs intended either to reduce progression and...
