Abstract

OBJECTIVE: The structural and compositional changes in the myocardium seem to have a major role in the development of heart failure (HF),Imbalance between production and degradation in extracellular collagen results in increase of collagen synthesis biomarkers in the circulation as the carboxy-terminal propeptide of type I procollagen (PIP). Here we aimed to determine role of PIP in the diagnosis of chronic HF.
