Authors: Dereli S, Kılınçel O, Çerik İB, Kaya A Abstract Background: In patients with heart failure (HF), depression and anxiety disorders are common and associated with adverse outcomes. Sacubitril/valsartan, which is an angiotensin receptor neprilysin inhibitor (ARNI), has been shown to reduce mortality and hospitalisation in patients with heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF). However, its effects on depression and anxiety levels remain unclear.Methods: Sacubitril/valsartan was initiated in 115 symptomatic patients with HFrEF receiving an optimal medical treatment with angiotensin...

CONCLUSIONS: From the review study, no sources were found concerning the association between the personality trait and the onset of early postoperative complications in enterostomised patients, highlighting, furthermore, a lack of data on the subject involving the entire field of abdominal surgery.

AbstractBackgroundImplantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs) are designed to deliver therapy in the event of malignant ventricular arrhythmias. Despite their benefits, some ICD recipients regret their decision on device implantation.ObjectivesThe aim of this study was to evaluate the incidence, predictors, and consequences of recipients that regretted their decision after implantation.MethodsA questionnaire-based cross-sectional survey of consecutive ICD recipients examined during a  routine outpatient follow-up visit was conducted. Their level of depression and anxiety was assessed with the hospital anxiety and d...

Conclusions Body image significantly predicted personal well-being among patients with an implanted LVAD. Depression alone, or depression combined with anxiety, moderated the relationships between body image and personal well-being. The current results may help to heighten healthcare providers' awareness of body image perception among patients with an implanted LVAD.

Conclusions: In a large population of patients with cardiac disease a significant educational gradient was found in mental and physical health and quality of life at hospital discharge. There was, however, no association between educational level and risk of cardiac events or mortality 1 year after hospital discharge. PMID: 32009558 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionsVarying definitions of HFpEF used in studies are a substantial limitation in interpretation of findings. The reduced efficacy noted in contemporary HF DMP studies may not only be due to improvements in usual care but may also reflect inclusion of heterogeneous patients with HFpEF or HF with mid ‐range EF who may not respond in the same way as HFrEF to individual components. Given that patients with HFpEF are older and multi‐morbid, DMPs targeting HFpEF should not rely on a single‐disease focus but provide care that addresses predisposing and presentation phenotypes and draws on the p rinciples of comprehen...

CONCLUSIONS: The findings suggest that interventions for reducing the negative impact on schedule of caregiving and helping to solve the caregivers' financial concerns might help to relieve their symptoms of depression and anxiety. PMID: 31904686 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
