Prognosis of patients post-myocardial infarction depends largely on the degree of left ventricular dysfunction, which results from loss of contractile tissue and remodeling of infarcted and surviving myocardium. This remodeling process may result in chronically progressive dysfunction and ultimately in heart failure. Next to mechanical determinants humoral control of hypertrophy, dilatation and qualitative changes of surviving myocardium are discussed. A major determinant of the extent of rem...
