Viagra against heart failure,

By

 How sildenafil, the active ingredient in Viagra, can alleviate heart problems is reported by Bochum’s researchers in cooperation with colleagues from the Mayo Clinic in Rochester (Minnesota) in the journal Circulation. They studied dogs with diastolic heart failure, a condition in which the heart chamber does not sufficiently fill with blood. The scientists showed that sildenafil makes stiffened cardiac walls more elastic again.
