Authors: Shah BR, DerSarkissian M, Tsintzos SI, Xiao Y, May D, Lu X, Kinrich D, Davis E, Lefebvre P, Duh MS, Dasta JF Abstract OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study is to assess the real-world impact of cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) on adherence to heart failure (HF) medications. METHODS: MarketScan® administrative health care claims data from 2008 to 2014 among patients with HF were used. The date of first CRT implantation served as the index date. Adherence to guideline-directed medical therapy (GDMT) classes were compared during pre- and post-index periods using proportion of days covered (PDC). Com...

In this study, IL-18 induced cardiomyoblast hypertrophy through IL-18R upregulation, which was found to be related to p38 MAPK and PI3 kinase signaling. Adenine, but not AuNPs, showed antihypertrophic effects possibly because of decreased levels of signaling. PMID: 31535629 [PubMed - in process]

Pandey, Ikeotunye R. Chinyere, Talal Moukabary, Nicole LaHood, Sherry L. Daugherty, Steven GoldmanBackgroundTo treat chronic heart failure (CHF), we developed a robust, easy to handle bioabsorbable tissue-engineered patch embedded with human neonatal fibroblasts and human induced pluripotent stem cell–derived cardiomyocytes (hiPSC-CMs). This patch was implanted on the epicardial surface of the heart covering the previously infarcted ...

AbstractA large intra-cardiac tumor from the right ventricle to pulmonary trunk was detected by contrast-enhanced computed tomography and transthoracic echocardiography in a 59-year-old woman with progressive dyspnea on effort and acute congestive right-sided heart failure. Emergent surgical management was performed with cardiopulmonary bypass under cardiac arrest, however, tumor resection was incomplete, because it originated from the interventricular septum. Concomitant tricuspid valve replacement using a bioprosthesis was required due to the involvement of the septal leaflet of the tricuspid valve. Although large pulmon...
