    • Heart failure (HF) is a complex clinical syndrome that can result from any structural or functional cardiac disorder that impairs the ability of the ventricle to fill with or eject blood. Echocardiography represents the "gold standard" in the assessment of LV systolic dysfunction and in the recognition of systolic heart failure, since dilatation of the LV results in alteration of intracardiac geometry and hemodynamics leading to increased morbidity and mortality...

    • Heart failure (HF) is a medical problem of huge socioeconomic importance, mainly due to the increasing life expectancy in our societies and the strides in the treatment of ischemic heart disease which resulted in improved prognosis of our patients. These medical and socioeconomic issues may explain why HF poses a significant financial burden on our health care systems...

    • Heart failure (HF) is a common endpoint for many forms of cardiovascular disease and a significant cause of morbidity and mortality. The development of end-stage HF often involves an initial insult to the myocardium that reduces cardiac output and leads to a compensatory increase in sympathetic nervous system activity. Acutely, the sympathetic hyperactivity through the activation of beta-adrenergic receptors increases heart rate and cardiac contractility, which compensate for decreased cardiac output...

    • Heart failure (HF) is a progressive degenerative and malignant syndrome with a large number of aetiologies including coronary artery disease, chronic hypertension, exposure to toxins, bacteria and viruses and in a significant percentage of HF patients, the causal mechanism is unclear...

    • Heart failure (HF) is a disease of the elderly and an important public health problem, due to a greater life span and multiple risk factor prevalence in developed societies, particularly arterial hypertension and coronary disease. The clinical syndrome of Acute Heart Failure (AHF) may present as acute new onset HF or as decompensated Chronic Heart Failure...
