Background Nonpotassium-sparing diuretics (NPSDs), have been associated with increased sudden cardiac death (SCD) and progressive heart failure (HF) death in HF patients.
Background Endothelin is elevated in heart failure and contributes to neurohormonal activation, hemodynamic deterioration, and cardiovascular remodeling. Here, we examined its prognostic value in a large population of patients with chronic heart failure.
Background Detrimental left ventricular (LV) remodeling is exacerbated in hypercholesterolemic patients with myocardial infarction; however, this could result from either larger infarcts or more extensive remodeling itself in this population. Therefore, we sought to investigate whether high...
Background The implication of various cytokines in a subclinical inflammatory process has been documented in heart failure (HF). The role of temporal changes of more conventional markers of inflammation, such as the white blood cell (WBC) count, on clinical outcomes remains largely unknown.
Background In human heart failure, increased expression of G protein–coupled receptor kinases (GRKs) causes the loss of β-adrenergic receptor (βAR) signaling and function. Mechanical unloading with a left ventricular assist device (LVAD) promotes reverse remodeling, which includes restoration...
Background The advent of medical therapies for congestive heart failure that have proven survival benefits, specifically angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors, β-adrenergic antagonists, and the aldosterone antagonists, have called into question the use of digoxin for patients with...
Background Heart failure (HF) guidelines recommend treatment with multiple medications to improve survival, functioning, and quality of life. Yet, HF treatments can be costly, resulting in significant economic burden for some patients. To date, there are few data on the impact of patients'...
