Biomarkers May Separately Predict New Preserved- and Low-LVEF HF Biomarkers May Separately Predict New Preserved- and Low-LVEF HF
Two types of heart failure, two ways to predict its onset: The different biomarker arrays for each HF type seem to reflect poorly understood differences in underlying causes.Medscape Medical News
Sacubitril/valsartan for heart failure with reduced left ventricular ejection fraction : A retrospective cohort study. Herz. 2018 Jan 19;: Authors: De Vecchis R, Ariano C, Di Biase G, Noutsias M Abstract BACKGROUND: The combination drug sacubitril/valsartan was reported to be superior to enalapril in reducing all-cause death, cardiovascular mortality, and heart failure (HF) hospitalizations in patients with cardiac insufficiency and reduced left ventricular ejection fraction (HFREF) with NYHA class II-IV. METHODS: Our retrospective cohort study aimed to assess the effects of sacubitril/va...
Authors: Guthrie R Abstract Review of: Marso S, Daniels G, Brown-Frandsen K, et al. Liraglutide and Cardiovascular Outcomes in Type 2 Diabetes. N Engl J Med 2016; 375: 311-322. Mann J, Orsted D, Brown-Frandsen K, et al. Liraglutide and Renal Outcomes in Type 2 Diabetes. N Engl J Med 2017; 377: 839-848. This comprehensive research project, LEADER, led to two reports, one focusing on the effect of liraglutide on cardiovascular events, and the second one reporting on the renal effects on the same study population. The study group included 9340 patients with type 2 diabetes. Patients were required to have type 2 diabet...
Dear Carol: I’m struggling with trying to find answers on how I can help my elderly mother. I’m 67, I’m retired and I live an hour away from my 87-year-old mom who has heart failure. Mom still lives alone in her house and this is very important to her. As her condition has worsened, she’s required more help from my sister who lives just 10 minutes away. My sister runs all of mom’s errands, completes all of her chores, and checks in on her several times a day. On top of this, my sister still works full time and won’t be able to retire for a three more years. I visit mom a couple time...
This article aims to provide a review of current literature on the role of thiamine in the human body, the current scope of thiamine deficiency, and explore the specific effects of thiamine deficiency and supplementation on the cardiovascular system.
Conclusions The use of durable, intracorporeal, continuous flow centrifugal pumps for management of advanced biventricular heart failure is associated with high morbidity and mortality. Further investigation of this device configuration is warranted.
Recognition of dying is a difficult task in end-stage heart failure, yet it remains an important clinical skill in providing good palliative care to these patients.

Conclusion: This translational study underscores the role of rhRLX – GR signaling as a novel regulator of hepatocellular protection against IR‐stress in OLT. In the context of a recent phase III clinical trial demonstrating positive outcomes of rhRLX in patients with acute heart failure, studies on rhRLX for the management of IRI in liver transplant recipients are warranted.
