Abstract

Congestive heart failure is a common and lethal disorder. Improved
understanding of the pathophysiology has led in recent years to more
rational therapeutic regimes. The historical development of modern
concepts of the pathophysiology and management of heart failure are
outlined, concentrating mainly on the role of neurohumoral systems - the
renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system and sympathetic nervous system.
Deficiencies in current knowledge are discussed, from which I outline
the objectives of the studies presented in this thesis.
