Learning objectives

  • Define cardiac remodelling, with particular focus on the influence of cardiovascular damage, pathogenic risk factors and the structural and functional changes in the left ventricle.
  • List the main clinical implications of cardiac remodelling.
  • Summarise the relationship between circulating biomarkers, such as NT-proBNP, troponin and sST2, with the extent left ventricular remodelling in subjects with HF.
  • Interpret the most recent clinical data from pharmacological and device-based studies in HFrEF and HfpEF.
