Our insights into different system levels of mechanisms by left ventricular assist device support are increasing and suggest a complex regulatory system of overlapping biological processes. To develop novel decision-making strategies and patient selection criteria, heart failure and reverse cardiac remodeling should be conceptualized and explored by a multifaceted research strategy of transcriptomics, metabolomics, proteomics, molecular biology, and bioinformatics. Knowledge of the molecular mechanisms of reverse cardiac remodeling is in its early stages, and comprehensive reconstruction of the underlying networks is necessary.
