Abstract

Captopril has marked effects on progression of disease and reduces the likelihood of progressive heart failure in patients with mild symptoms. Several indices of unfavourable prognosis are either improved (sodium, norepinephrine, angiotensin II) or stabilized (left ventricular function). Thus ACE-inhibitors are to be considered for all patients requiring medical therapy for congestive heart failure.
