Quality and Health Literacy Demand of Online Heart Failure Information.

CONCLUSIONS: The heart failure information found online was of fair quality but required a relatively high health literacy level. Web content authors need to consider not just the quality but also the health literacy demand of the information found in their Web sites. This is especially important considering that low health literacy is likely prevalent among the usual audience. PMID: 26938508 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

At present, there are no unanimous criteria of surgical indications for Takayasu arteritis (TA) patients, although ischemic symptoms of organs or limbs and aneurysms at risk of rupture may be widely in consensus. However, because heart failure has been proved to be a leading cause of death in TA patients, abnormal hemodynamics should also be considered a surgical indication to ease the burden on the heart and to improve patients ’ prognoses.
