Background This study was designed to test whether circulating levels of myocardium-specific proteins serve as useful markers for the prognosis of patients with congestive heart failure.
Background Heart failure consists of two phenotypes: systolic heart failure and diastolic heart failure (DHF). A growing body of evidence demonstrated benefits of β-blocker, angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor, and angiotensin II receptor blocker in systolic heart failure; however, evidence...
Background Patients with diabetes have poorer outcomes after surgery in general. In this study, we assess the impact of diabetes on outcomes after left ventricular assist devices (LVAD) placement.
Background Left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy and dilation are important compensatory responses to chronic volume overload; however, the mechanisms responsible for this LV remodeling have not been well characterized. Previous observations that the number of myocardial mast cells are increased in...
Background Isolated diastolic dysfunction is thought to account for approximately 50% of cases of heart failure. We tested the hypotheses that (1) the use of different methods for assessing systolic and diastolic function may contribute to the apparent frequency with which they are dissociated...
Background Sympathetic benefits of thoracoscopic cardiac resynchronization therapy (TCRT) in congestive heart failure (CHF) are unknown. We determined cardiac hemodynamics, functional status, and muscle sympathetic nerve activity (MSNA) in a group of TCRT patients. We aimed to compare these...
Background Half of patients with heart failure (HF) have preserved left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF). Neurohormonal activation characterizes the disease and measurement of plasma B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) indicates the severity of left ventricular dysfunction. The purpose of this...
