Testosterone improves heart function in heart failure?

Testosterone improves heart function in heart failure?Therapy testosterone increases cardiac output in men with chronic heart failure. This is probably due to the reduction of postawski on the left ventricle, British researchers believe. Still hemodynamic effects of testosterone practically not been studied. Dr. Kevin S. Channer and his colleagues (Hospital Royal Hallamshire Hospital, Sheffield) made small in volume, placebo-controlled study in which men with stable chronic heart failure (CHF) received testosterone 60 mg/day. The findings appear in the may issue of the European Heart Journal. Compared with placebo, testosterone resulted in a significant increase in cardiac output (p<0.0001); the peak effect was observed after 3 h after administration of the hormone. The increase in cardiac output was accompanied by a decrease postawski on the left ventricle. On the other hemodynamic parameters, testosterone had no effect. Despite encouraging results, the group of patients was too small, say the authors. Already begun a larger study on the same issue. [РЎardiosite.ru].
