Extracted from text ... Medifile MEDIFILE The recent Perindopril Remodelling in Elderly with Acute Myocardial Infarction (PREAMI) study showed that perindopril significantly reduced the composite risk of death, hospitalisation for heart failure, and cardiac remodelling in an elderly population with preserved left ventricular (LV) function, after an acute myocardial infarction (MI). This edition of Medifile reviews the process of cardiac remodelling post infarction, with specific focus on the role of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS). Heart failure, defined as a clinical syndrome caused by cardiac disease, which compromises ventricular systolic or diastolic function or both, is a serious disease with high morbidity and mortality due ..
