BACKGROUND: To determine the feasibility of Peripheral Intravenous Volume Assessment (PIVA) of venous waveforms for assessing volume overload in patients admitted to the hospital with acute decompensated heart failure (ADHF). METHODS: Venous waveforms were captured from a peripheral intravenous catheter in subjects admitted for ADHF and healthy age-matched controls. Admission PIVA signal, brain natriuretic peptide, and chest radiographic measurements were related to the net volume removed during diuresis...

BACKGROUND: As neprilysin is involved in the degradation of amyloid-beta, there is concern the angiotensin-neprilysin inhibitor, sacubitril-valsartan, could increase the risk for dementia. METHODS: We analyzed adverse event cases submitted to the FDA adverse event report system between July 2015 and March 2017. Cognition and dementia related adverse event cases were defined using broad and narrow structured medical queries. RESULTS: During the period evaluated, 9,004 adverse event reports (out of a total of 2,249,479) involved the use of sacubitril-valsartan...

BACKGROUND: Dialysis-requiring acute kidney injury (D-AKI) is a serious complication in hospitalized heart failure (HF) patients. However, data on national trends are lacking after 2002. METHODS: We used the Nationwide Inpatient Sample (2002-2013) to identify HF hospitalizations with and without D-AKI. We analyzed trends in incidence, in-hospital mortality, length of stay (LoS) and cost. We calculated adjusted odds ratios (aOR) for predictors of D-AKI and for outcomes including in-hospital mortality and adverse discharge (discharge to skilled nursing facilities, nursing homes, etc)...

BACKGROUND: Published studies have generated mixed, controversial results regarding the cost-effectiveness of heart failure-disease management programs (HF-DMP). This study assessed the cost-effectiveness of an HF-DMP in ambulatory patients compared with usual care (UC). METHODS: In the prospective, randomized REMADHE trial, we evaluated incremental costs per quality-adjusted life-year (QALY) and life-year (LY) gained as effectiveness ratios (ICERs) over a study period of 2...

BACKGROUND: Follow-up within 14 days after hospital discharge for heart failure (HF) may prevent 30-day hospital readmission, but adherence varies. The purpose of this study was to determine predictors of non-adherence to scheduled appointments. METHODS AND RESULTS: A medical record review included patients hospitalized for decompensated HF at 3 health system hospitals, and who had a scheduled 14-day office appointment. Patient demographics, and social, HF and hospital factors were studied for association with appointment adherence...

BACKGROUND: Periodic breathing (PB) is often observed in patients with HF at rest, with sleep and during exercise. However, mechanisms underlying abnormal ventilatory control are not entirely established. METHODS: Eleven subjects with HF (10M, age=69±12yr) and 12 age-matched controls (8M, age=65±9yr) participated in the study. PB was defined as a peak in the 0.003-0.04Hz frequency range of the flow signal during 6-minutes of awake resting breathing. Thoracic blood volumes (Vt , thorax; Vh , heart; Vp , pulmonary), mean transit times (MTT) and extravascular lung water (EVLW) were quantified using computed tomography...

BACKGROUND: The utility of endomyocardial biopsy (EMB) in the management of myocarditis in the era of advanced cardiac imaging has been challenged. METHODS AND RESULTS: The Nationwide Inpatient Sample Database years (1998-2013) was queried to identify hospitalization records with a primary diagnosis of myocarditis, and underwent EMB procedure. We identified 22,299 hospitalization records with a diagnosis of myocarditis during the study period. Of those, 798 (3.6%) underwent EMB procedure...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to characterize N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) in terms of determinants of levels and of its prognostic and discriminatory role in heart failure with mid-range (HFmrEF) versus preserved (HFpEF) and reduced (HFrEF) ejection fraction. METHODS AND RESULTS: In 9847 outpatients with HFpEF (n = 1811; 18%), HFmrEF (n = 2122; 22%) and HFrEF (n = 5914; 60%) enrolled in the Swedish Heart Failure Registry, median NT-proBNP levels were 1428, 1540, and 2288 pg/mL, respectively...

BACKGROUND: Heart failure (HF) is associated with an incremental risk of ischemic stroke, but limited real-world data exist in Patients with HF without atrial fibrillation (AF). OBJECTIVES: This study quantified the incremental risk of ischemic stroke among newly diagnosed patients with HF and without AF. METHODS: Adult patients with an HF-related claim and ≥18 months of enrollment before their index HF (i.e., baseline period) were identified in Truven Health Analytics MarketScan Databases (01/2010-04/2015)...

BACKGROUND: The pulmonary artery pulsatility index (PAPi) - defined as the ratio of pulmonary artery pulse pressure to right atrial pressure -emerged as a powerful predictor of right ventricular (RV) failure in patients with acute inferior myocardial infarction and those undergoing left ventricular assist device placement, however, its prognostic utility in the advanced heart failure population remains largely unknown. METHODS AND RESULTS: We comparatively analyzed PAPi with traditional indices of RV function including RV stroke work index (RVSWI) and right atrial /pulmonary capillary wedge pressure ratio (RAP/PCWP) in the ESCAPE trial...

BACKGROUND: Gastrointestinal bleeding (GIB) remains a major morbid event during continuous flow left ventricular assist device (LVAD) support. This study investigated whether a common hemodynamic profile is associated with GIB in patients with LVADs. METHODS AND RESULTS: A single institution analysis reviewed all patients who underwent right heart catheterization (RHC) following LVAD implant between 1/1/2006 and 12/31/2013 with follow-up through 6/2015. Kaplan-Meier and multi-phase hazard statistical methods were employed...
