Cardiac disease is the most common cause of death in developed nations and affects more than 80 million American adults every year. Among cardiac diseases, myocardial infarction is one of the leading causes of congestive heart failure. Due to an infarct, the loads within the heart alter and within hours a remodeling process begins as the heart attempts to optimize function given its diminished capacity. This remodeling process itself can cause inconsistent thinning and dilation leading to potential problems such as volume overloaded hypertrophy and often causes further functional deterioration.
