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

Authors: Choi KH, Han S, Lee GY, Choi JO, Jeon ES, Lee HY, Lee SE, Kim JJ, Chae SC, Baek SH, Kang SM, Choi DJ, Yoo BS, Kim KH, Cho MC, Park HY, Oh BH Abstract BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: The prognostic impact of left axis deviation (LAD) on clinical outcomes in acute heart failure syndrome (AHFS) with left bundle branch block (LBBB) is unknown. The aim of this study was to determine the prognostic significance of axis deviation in acute heart failure patients with LBBB. METHODS: Between March 2011 and February 2014, 292 consecutive AHFS patients with LBBB were recruited from 10 tertiary university hospitals. The...

Authors: Kwon SW, Park SD, Moon J, Oh PC, Jang HJ, Park HW, Kim TH, Lee K, Suh J, Kang W Abstract BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: We aimed to compare outcomes of complete revascularization (CR) versus culprit-only revascularization for ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and multivessel disease (MVD) in the 2nd generation drug-eluting stent (DES) era. METHODS: From 2009 to 2014, patients with STEMI and MVD, who underwent primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) using a 2nd generation DES for culprit lesions were enrolled. CR was defined as PCI for a non-infarct-related artery during the index ...

Publication date: Available online 19 October 2018Source: Canadian Journal of CardiologyAuthor(s): Panagiotis Savvoulidis, Javed Butler, Andreas KalogeropoulosAbstractWith the advent and widespread use of antiretroviral therapy (ART), the epidemiology of cardiomyopathy and heart failure (HF) associated with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection is changing. Near-normal life expectancy in contemporary HIV-infected populations has been associated with prolonged exposure to increased cardiometabolic burden and chronic immune activation and systemic inflammation. Therefore, the pre-ART phenotype of HIV-associated cardio...

This study aims to diagnose the CHF accurately using heart rate variability (HRV) signals. The HRV signals are non-stationary and nonlinear in nature. We have used eigenvalue decomposition of Hankel matrix (EVDHM) method to analyze the HRV signals. The lowest frequency component (LFC) and the highest frequency component (HFC) are extracted from the eigenvalue decomposed components of HRV signals. After that, the mean and standard deviation in time domain, mean frequency calculated from Fourier-Bessel series expansion, k-nearest neighbor (k-NN) entropy, and correntropy features are evaluated from the decomposed components. ...

Authors: Frich JC Abstract Henrik Ibsen (1828-1906) is a Norwegian playwright and poet who is known as the father of modern drama. Ibsen was in good health when he announced at his 70th birthday celebration that he intended to continue writing. His last play, When We Dead Awaken, was published in 1899. Why did Ibsen's dramatic writing come to an end? This chapter presents a medical account of Ibsen's health condition during the last 6 years of his life. It is based on a review of a document written by one of his doctors, Edvard Bull (1845-1925), letters, biographic information, and Ibsen's death certificate. The hi...

Biolife4D has achieved a milestone in its ultimate quest to develop human organs for transplant. The company recently announced that it has developed a cardiac patch using a highly specialized 3D printer designed to protect living cells during the printing process. The patch is designed to help patients recover heart function after an acute myocardial infarction, said Ravi Birla, PhD, the company’s chief science officer, in an interview with MD+DI. “Over several weeks, acute myocardial infarction results in scar formation and progresses to chronic heart failure, severely damp...

Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) has been shown to be beneficial in patients with medically refractory heart failure. While it has been found to be effective in a wide range of etiologies for non-ischemic cardiomyopathy, its role in improving remodeling and survival of patients with cardiac sarcoidosis (CS) remains undefined. We performed a retrospective review of all patients at our institution with CS who underwent implantation of a CRT device between 2007 and 2017. The outcomes of this population were compared to the outcomes of a cohort of patients with non-ischemic cardiomyopathy with an etiology other than sarcoidosis.
