Publication date: Available online 14 October 2019Source: Canadian Journal of CardiologyAuthor(s): Ramiro Lizano Santamaria, Aamir Jeewa, Ari Cedars, Holger Buchholz, Jennifer ConwayAbstractThe use of ventricular assist device (VAD) support continues to increase and it is now considered part of the standard of care for most adult and children with end stage heart failure unresponsive to medical management. However, the application of VAD therapy in both the pediatric and adult population with congenital heart disease (CHD) has been less extensive and continues to face significant challenges. Nevertheless, the experience is...

Abstract This case report shows that pleural empyema limits the diagnostic significance of imaging techniques. Hereafter, we present the case of an 82-year-old patient with primary pericardial mesothelioma, which was veiled by a pleural empyema. The patient met the typical triad of signs of heart failure (dyspnea, lower leg oedema), pericardial effusion, and pericarditis. Echocardiography in the identification of pericardial mesotheliomas is low. In this case, the cardiac function could be imaged well, but the tumor could not be imaged. The CT showed a pericardial effusion and a pleural effusion. Here, the tumor c...

Abstract BACKGROUND: Inadequate self-care is linked to poor health outcomes in heart failure (HF). Self-care depends on decision-making abilities, but links between self-care and brain injury to executive decision-making regulatory areas (prefrontal cortices) are unclear. OBJECTIVE: We investigated the relationships between HF self-care and status of prefrontal cortices. METHODS: Magnetic resonance imaging-based diffusion tensor imaging was performed in 21 patients with HF (age, 53.8 ± 7.9 years; 15 men; left ventricular ejection fraction, 25.1% ± 6.1%), and self-care and executive function...

This study aimed to investigate the intrinsic mechanisms of Qishen granules (QSG) in the treatment of HF, and to provide new evidence and insights for its clinical application. Information on QSG ingredients was collected from Traditional Chinese medicine systems pharmacology (TCMSP), TCM@Taiwan, TCMID, and Batman, and input into SwissTargetPrediction to identify the compound targets. HF-related targets were detected from Therapeutic Target Database (TTD), Disgenet-Gene, Drugbank database, and Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man (OMIM) database. The overlap targets of QSG and HF were identified for pathway enrichment analy...

Authors: Yelgeç NS, Karataş MB, Karabay CY, Çanga Y, Şimşek B, Çalık AN, Emre A Abstract Background: Lead aVR provides prognostic information in various settings for patients with cardiovascular diseases. The present study aimed to investigate the prognostic value of a positive T wave in lead aVR (TaVR) for patients with acute pulmonary embolism (APE). Methods: We screened a total of 412 consecutive patients who were hospitalised with a diagnosis of APE between 2008 and 2018. We investigated electrocardiograms (ECGs) for the presence of a positive TaVR and classified other abnormal ECG find...

Patient frailty means decreased physiologic reserve and lower resistance to stressors, increased dependency, and fatal outcome [1]. Frailty is more frequent in elderly people, and its prevalence in patients with heart failure (HF) ranges from 15 to 74%, according to the studied population and the method of assessment [2]. The association between HF and frailty is obvious, considering that cardiac dysfunction reduces exercise capacity, promotes systemic inflammation, muscle wasting, and malabsorption.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewHeart transplant (HT) is the therapy of choice for patients with end-stage heart failure (HF), leading to substantial improvements in quality of life, functional status, and longevity compared to optimal medical therapy for end-stage HF. However, race/ethnic disparities in post-HT survival persist and remain a major concern. The purpose of this review is to describe differences in post-transplant outcomes based on race/ethnicity and to highlight evolving knowledge of the reasons for these persistent disparate outcomes.Recent FindingsBlack HT recipients have the highest risk for allograft failure an...
