Conclusion: We have found some factors associated with increased odds of readmission among patients hospitalized with COVID-19. Awareness of these risk factors, including patients’ social determinants of health, may ultimately help to reduce readmission rates.

Med Sci Monit. 2022 Jan 19;28:e934255. doi: 10.12659/MSM.934255.ABSTRACTReperfusion therapy is the optimal therapy for acute myocardial infarction (AMI), but acute inflammatory injury and chronic heart failure (HF) after myocardial ischemia and reperfusion (MI/R) remain the leading cause of death after AMI. Pyroptosis, a newly discovered form of cell death, has been proven to play a significant role in the acute reperfusion process and the subsequent chronic process of ventricular remodeling. Current research shows that multiple stimuli activate the pyroptotic signaling pathway and contribute to cell death and nonbacterial...

Objective In recent years, the prevalence and mortality of heart failure (HF) and other associated cardiovascular diseases have doubled in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). Studies in high-income countries indicate that HF with concurrent atrial fibrillation (AF) is linked to increased mortality. Our objective was to determine the incidence and clinical outcomes of AF among patients with HF in SSA. Design A prospective cohort study using data collected between October 2018 and May 2020. Setting Outpatient clinic at a tertiary hospital in Mwanza, Tanzania. Participants 303 adult participants (aged ≥18 years) with HF as define...

AbstractMyocardial fibrosis (MF) represents the underlying pathologic condition of many cardiac disease, leading to cardiac dysfunction and heart failure (HF). Biopsy studies have shown the presence of MF in patients with decompensating HF despite apparently normal cardiac function. In fact, basic indices of left ventricular (LV) function, such as LV ejection fraction (EF), fail to recognize subtle LV dysfunction caused by MF. Cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) with late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) is currently recognized as the gold standard imaging investigation for the detection of focal and diffuse cardiac chambers MF; ...

Although continuity and coordination of care have received increased attention as important ways to improve outcomes and decrease costs, limited information is available concerning the effects of “care continuity” and “care coordination” on mortality and costs. We used nationwide population-based data from Taiwan to explore the effects of care continuity and coordination on mortality and costs for heart failure.
