AbstractHyponatremia at admission is predictive of poor prognosis in patients with acute decompensated heart failure (ADHF). We performed a meta-analysis of cohort studies to evaluate whether improvement of hyponatremia is associated with improved survival in patients with ADHF and hyponatremia. Relevant studies were identified through systematic search of PubMed and Embase. A random-effect model was used to pool the results. Predefined subgroup analyses were performed to explore the source of heterogeneity. Five thousand seven hundred fourteen patients with ADHF and hyponatremia from eight cohort studies were included. Re...

AbstractMitochondrial dysfunction is widely recognized as a major factor for the progression of cardiac failure. Mitochondrial uptake of metabolic substrates and their utilization for ATP synthesis, electron transport chain activity, reactive oxygen species levels, ion homeostasis, mitochondrial biogenesis, and dynamics as well as levels of reactive oxygen species in the mitochondria are key factors which regulate mitochondrial function in the normal heart. Alterations in these functions contribute to adverse outcomes in heart failure. Iron imbalance and oxidative stress are also major factors for the evolution of cardiac ...
