In chronic heart failure (CHF), cardiac dysfunction is considered the major determinant of neurohumoral activation but the role of renal impairment has not been defined. We investigated the relationship between both cardiac and renal dysfunction and neurohumoral activation, and their possible influence on prognosis.
