Abstract

Abstract. Heart failure that accompanies chronic ischemic heart disease is a worldwide health problem of major proportions. Pathophysiologic mechanisms responsible for its onset and progressive nature pose serious challenges, while repeated hospitalizations stress health care resources. Herein the microscopic structural remodeling of the myocardium that appears at and remote to myocardial infarction is reviewed. Using a paradigm of wound healing, the involvement of chemical mediators of tissue repair generated within granulation tissue by constitutive cells is examined.
