BACKGROUND: It has been suggested that patients with heart failure (HF) have an increased fall rate. Although balance is one of the most important risk factors for fall, there is not sufficient information about balance in HF. OBJECTIVE: To compare stati...

Heart failure is one of the leading causes of high morbidity and mortality. It was estimated that a total of 5.7 million Americans>20 years of age had heart failure from 2009 to 2012. That number is anticipated to increase 46% by 2030.1 Acute heart failure (AHF) exacerbation is a potentially fatal condition that may result in acute respiratory failure and requires mechanical ventilation. Despite ongoing treatment, not all patients can be weaned off the ventilator. In such cases, tracheostomy is indicated to obtain the benefit of comfort for the patients, less sedation and more stable airway compare to an endotracheal tu...

Studies have shown that highly selected patients undergoing combined heart-kidney (HK) and heart-liver transplants (HLv) have short- and long-term outcomes comparable to those observed in primary heart transplantation (HT). Adults patients with stage D heart failure that underwent combined HK, HLv and heart-lung (HL) were identified in the United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) registry between 1991 and 2016, with follow-up through March 2018. We conducted inverse probability of treatment weighting (IPTW) survival analysis of long-term survival stratified by type of combined organ transplant, accounting for donor, recipie...

AbstractType 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is a known predisposing factor for heart failure (HF). The growing burden of these two conditions and their impact on health of the individual and on society in general needs urgent attention from the health care professionals. Availability of multiple treatment choices for managing T2DM and HF may make therapeutic decisions more complex for clinicians. Recent cardiovascular outcome trials of antidiabetic drugs have added very robust evidence to effectively manage subjects with this dual condition. This consensus statement provides the prevalence trends and the impact of this dual bu...

ConclusionsOur findings suggest that empagliflozin prescribed for preventing CV death or hHF in T2DM patients seems to be cost saving compared to treatment with canagliflozin, and dapagliflozin.

Authors: Dandel M, Javier MFDM, Javier Delmo EMD, Hetzer R Abstract Introduction: Because end-stage heart failure (HF) often involves both ventricles even if its initial cause was left-sided heart disease, assessment of RV size, geometry and function before, during and after LVAD implantation is of crucial importance.Areas covered: This review discusses the usefulness, benefits, particular challenges and limits of RV assessment in patients with end-stage HF due to primarily impaired LV function who necessitate LVAD support, with or without an additional RV mechanical support.Expert opinion: Although LV unloading of...
