Abstract:

Summary Myocardial ischemia results in myocardial dysfunction. Recovery may be delayed ('stunning'), or persistent if perfusion remains reduced ('hibernation') and ischemia may go on to necrosis, thus, contributing to chronic heart failure. In addition, myocardium not directly affected by ischemia may undergo adaptive processes like hypertrophy and dilatation, which may result in chronic left heart failure. This process is characterized by hemodynamic, neurohumoral, and progressive morphologi...
