METHODS: A total of 103 patients with advanced heart failure evaluated for candidacy for heart transplantation were included in this study. TAPSE was measured by M‑mode echocardiography and cardiac catheteri...

AbstractLeft ventricular assist devices (LVAD) are frequently used in the treatment of end-stage heart failure (HF), and due to the shortage of heart donors and destination programs, it is likely to keep on growing. Still, LVAD therapy is not without complications and morbidity and rehospitalization rates are high. New ways to improve LVAD care both from the side of the patient and the physician are warranted. Remote monitoring could be a tool to tailor treatment in these patients, as no feedback exists at all about patient functioning on top of the static pump parameters. We aim to provide an overview and evaluation of th...

Shemin, Peyman BenharashAbstractBackgroundReducing inpatient readmissions is a national priority for improving healthcare quality and decreasing costs. Previous studies have shown that readmissions following surgical aortic valve replacement are frequent and contribute to increased healthcare costs, yet no studies have analyzed risk factors for readmission.MethodsThe Nationwide Readmissions Database was used to identify adult patients under...

Authors: Bolat I, Biteker M Abstract Objectives. Although the modified Glasgow Prognostic Score (mGPS) has been reported to have prognostic value in patients with various cancers, the association between mGPS and prognosis in patients with heart diseases have not been well studied. The aim of this study was to evaluate the predictive value of mGPS in outcomes of patients with heart failure and preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF). Design. We prospectively followed consecutive adult patients with HFpEF admitted to the cardiology outpatient unit. Echocardiographic and laboratory data were recorded at enrolment. mGPS w...

Mechanical  circulatory support (MCS) evolved from an engineering dream to clinical reality during the 1980s when increasing numbers of patients were dying on heart transplant wait lists. Following the Randomized Evaluation of Mechanical Assistance for the Treatment of Congestive Heart Failure Trial,1 the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved a pulsatile implantable left ventricular assist device (LVAD) for long-term implantation in 2002. When the FDA approved the first US continuous flow (CF) LVAD in 2008, the landscape had changed dramatically.
