Chronic heart failure (HF) is a progressive, multifactorial, and debilitating disease that is often characterized by the impairment of systolic function and the loss of calcium homeostasis due to insufficient reuptake of calcium ions back into sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) using Ca [sup]2+-ATPase and/or insufficient inflow of calcium ions into myocytes through using Na [sup]+/Ca [sup]2+ exchanger.
