To estimate the associations between dysnatraemia and inflammatory marker [including interleukin-6 (IL-6)], and tissue remodelling marker [matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-9 and tissue inhibitor of MMP (TIMP)-1], the pulmonary capillary wedge pressure (PCWP), mean pulmonary artery pressure (PAP), and left ventricular end-diastolic pressure (EDP), and the prognostic relevance in patients with heart failure. The serum sodium level and circulating levels of IL-6, MMP-9, and TIMP-1 were measured in 173 heart failure patients. Dual heart catheterisation was performed to measure PCWP, mean PAP, and EDP.
