Abstract

Objective: Arrhythmia are seen frequently in patients with heart failure (HF). Carvedilol which has both beta-blocker and alfa-blocker properties has led to new expectations in the treatment of HF. Our aim is to explore the effect of carvedilol on left ventricular (LV) function and development of arrhythmia in patients with HF.
