  • Recently, we and others have shown that plasma adrenomedullin concentrations are increased in patients with heart failure in proportion to clinical severity, 7 8 and that plasma adrenomedullin is increased at an early stage of acute myocardial infarction. (bmj.com)
  • 11 12 These findings raise the possibility that high plasma adrenomedullin concentrations in an early phase of myocardial infarction are related to left ventricular dysfunction, and thus may be associated with long term mortality in patients with myocardial infarction. (bmj.com)
