Impact of increased venous pressure on kidney function and mortality in cardiovascular patients with preserved ejection fraction.

Impact of increased venous pressure on kidney function and mortality in cardiovascular patients with preserved ejection fraction. Curr Med Res Opin. 2019 Dec 21;:1 Authors: Milkas A, Tsioufis K, Koliastasis L, Tsiamis E, Tousoulis D, Bartunek J, Vanderheyden M Abstract Background: Right but not left ventricular hemodynamic parameters have been found to be independently associated with adverse renal outcomes in patients with acute decompensated heart failure (HF).Aim: To investigate the hemodynamic profile of patients without acute decompensated heart failure and left ventricular ejection fraction>50% referred for elective left and right heart catheterization and to correlate left and right filling pressures, stroke volume and arterial blood pressure to renal function parameters. Subsequently, we tested the hypothesis that right ventricle and left ventricle hemodynamic parameters could predict all-cause mortality in our non-HF subjects.Methods: Between October 2009 and November 2010, 151 consecutive patients referred for elective left and right heart catheterization were studied and consequently followed up for a mean period of 8 years in order to identify all-cause mortality. Patient's initial cohort was subdivided in two groups according to right atrium pressure. The RAPRLOW group (Right Atrium Pressure ≤9 mmHg) and the RAPRHIGH group (Right Atrium Pressure>9mmHg)Results: No correlation between blood pressure, pulmonary capillary wedges p...

In this study, except for troponin elevation,Gestalt was the best predictor.The article does not specify the QT correction methodWhy is right ventricular hypertrophy (RVH) not found in this large study of syncope?  Probably because it is not common enough to be identified in a general syncope study.  Not every high risk factor will be identified in such studies, but it is obvious that RVH is a dangerous condition and that, if identified on ECG, needs further workup.  Why were so few ECG findings predictive?Because most abnormal ECG findings were considered adverse outcomes in their own right and not eva...

AbstractBackgroundThe prevalence of heart failure (HF) is rising with ageing population and constitutes a major health problem globally. A common complication of HF is pulmonary hypertension (PH) which negatively impacts survival. A pathophysiological association between HF and PH with tumorigenic processes has been suggested. We aimed to identify the plasma levels of, and the association between tumour-related proteins and hemodynamic improvements in patients with HF and PH due to left heart disease (LHD) before and 1-year after heart transplantation (HT).MethodsForty-eight tumour-related proteins were measured with proxi...

ConclusionsA clear trend towards worse outcome with larger TRV or TR% was shown; however, the number of events was insufficient for significant outcome differences. Prognostic value of quantitative TR should be investigated in a larger multicentre cohort. Effective RV ejection fraction may be considered an improved measure of RV function in PAH.

AbstractAimsThe PREPARE ‐MVR study (PRediction of Early PostoperAtive Right vEntricular failure in Mitral Valve repair (MVR) and to explore the associations between/Repair patients) sought to investigate the alterations of right ventricular (RV) contraction pattern in patients undergoing mitral valve replacement/repair ( MVR) and to explore the associations between pre‐operative RV mechanics and early post‐operative RV dysfunction (RVD).Methods and resultsWe prospectively enrolled 42 patients (63  ± 11 years, 69% men) undergoing open‐heart MVR. Transthoracic three‐dimensional (3D) echocardio...

ConclusionsThe SV ‐INHIBITION study aims to answer the question whether PDE5 inhibitors should be prescribed in patients with an SV. This trial has been built focusing on the three levels of research defined by the World Health Organization: disability (exercise tolerance), deficit (SV function), and handicap (qual ity of life).

Authors: Toroghi HM, Lo KB, Ziccardi MR, Horn B, Kanjanahattakij N, Malik E, Penalver J, Rangaswami J, Gupta S, Amanullah A Abstract Worsening renal function in patients with heart failure with preserved ejection fraction is associated with poor outcomes. Pulmonary arterial capacitance is a novel right heart catheterization derived hemodynamic metric representing pulmonary arterial tree distensibility and right ventricle afterload. Given the strong association between heart failure, pulmonary hypertension, and kidney function, the goal of this study is to investigate the correlation between Pulmonary arterial capac...

CONCLUSIONS: NFLG-AS was the most prevalent form of LG severe AS and was associated with adequate left ventricular compensation and good prognosis. On the other hand, CLFLG-AS represents the heart-failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF) form of AS and was associated with the worst prognosis, whereas PLFLG-AS represents the heart-failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) form of AS with intermediary prognosis. Both groups showed early hemodynamic reverse response after TAVR. PMID: 31566569 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
