Author information

Department of Medicine, University of Connecticut School of Medicine, Farmington, USA.


This article takes three different approaches to the question of whether the failing heart is in an energy-starved state. A brief historical overview introduces the issue and points out problems in both models and methods. Second, current information regarding the energetic state of the failing heart is examined. Finally, the mechanistic and therapeutic implications of a defect in energy production are described.
