BACKGROUND: Multisite biventricular pacing(MSP) has been proposed as an alternative strategy to improve the efficiency of conventional biventricular pacing(BVP), but its utility remains unclear. This study sought to investigate whether MSP induced better synchrony and hemodynamic effects in canines with heart failure. METHODS AND RESULTS: After 3 weeks' rapid right ventricular pacing(RVP), 7 canines were sutured with 4 left ventricular(LV) leads on anterior, lateral, posterior and apical wall, and followed by MSP and BVP...

BACKGROUND: Chronotropic incompetence (CI) in heart failure (HF) patients with cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) and activity sensors may vary according to exercise modality. We hypothesized that chronotropic response and exercise capacity differ when HF patients with CRT and heart rate (HR) adaptive pacing are exercised on cycloergometer versus (vs.) treadmill. METHODS AND RESULTS: Crossover study in which stable HF patients with CRT and HR-adaptive pacing triggered by activity sensors underwent maximal symptom-limited cardiopulmonary exercise testing on both cycloergometer and treadmill...

REVIEW
Jeyamalar Rajadurai, Hung-Fat Tse, Chao-Hung Wang, Ning-I Yang, Jingmin Zhou, David Sim
Heart failure (HF) is a major global healthcare problem with an estimated prevalence of approximately 26 million. In Asia-Pacific regions, HF is associated with a significant socio-economic burden and high rates of hospital admission. Epidemiological data that could help to improve management approaches to address this burden in Asia-Pacific regions are limited, but suggests patients with HF in Asia-Pacific are younger and have more severe signs and symptoms of HF than those of Western countries. However, local guidelines are based largely on the European Society of Cardiology and American College of Cardiology Foundation/American Heart Association guidelines, which draw their evidence from studies where Western patients form the major demographic and patients from the Asia-Pacific region are under-represented...

BACKGROUND: Arterial stiffness is a risk factor for heart failure (HF) and is higher in women. Our objective was to investigate gender differences between arterial stiffness and incident HF in the Multi-ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis (MESA) population. METHODS AND RESULTS: Applanation tonometry from 5,959 participants (52.8% women) was used to calculate augmentation index (AIx), pulse pressure amplification (PPA) and reflection magnitude (RM). Sex-specific risk of HF was assessed using a competing risk regression model...

BACKGROUND: This study was conducted to determine the association between aortic pulse pressure (APP) and left ventricular (LV) filling pressure in the elderly of both genders. METHODS: A total of 211 stable elderly subjects (age ≥ 65 years, mean age 72.1 ± 5.2 years, 53.6% women) who underwent invasive coronary angiography (ICA) for the evaluation of coronary artery disease (CAD) were prospectively investigated. APP was measured in the ascending aorta using a pigtail catheter immediately before ICA...

BACKGROUND: Heart failure (HF) in late pregnancy and postpartum (HFPP), of which peripartum cardiomyopathy (PPCM) constitutes the larger part, is still a rare occurrence in Sweden. Population-based data are scarce. Our aim was to characterize HFPP and determine the incidence and mortality in a Swedish cohort. METHODS AND RESULTS: Through merging data from the National Inpatient, Cause of Death, and Medical Birth Registries, we identified ICD-10 codes for HF and cardiomyopathy within 3 months before delivery to 6 months postpartum...

BACKGROUND: High intensity training (HIT) is superior to moderate aerobic training (MAT) for improving quality of life in congestive heart failure (CHF) patients. Speckle tracking echocardiography (STE) has recently been suggested for estimation of left ventricle global and regional function. AIMS: We evaluated the utility of STE for characterizing differences in cardiac function following MAT or HIT in a CHF rat model. METHODS AND RESULTS: Following baseline physiological assessment, CHF was induced by coronary artery ligation in Sprague-Dawley rats...

BACKGROUND: Despite the availability of validated risk scores for survival in heart failure (HF), individualized estimates are not typically provided directly to patients. METHODS AND RESULTS: We explored patient perspectives regarding conveyance of individualized Seattle Heart Failure Model (SHFM) survival estimates. In 2014 and 2015, 24 HF patients completed a semistructured interview at the initial offering of SHFM survival estimates (baseline) and a follow-up interview...

BACKGROUND: Recent studies have suggested a high prevalence of cardiac amyloidosis (CAm) in heart failure (HF) patients. CAm might be underdiagnosed owing to low clinical suspicion. METHODS AND RESULTS: We performed retrospective analysis of 259 patients with HF and ejection fraction (EF) ≥50% referred for endomyocardial biopsy. Seventy-three (28%) had CAm. Multivariable independent predictors of CAm were identified. Over a mean follow-up of 2.6 ± 3.3 years, CAm patients had worse survival than those without (1...

BACKGROUND: Social media is an increasingly relevant tool used to deliver and receive healthcare related content for and by patients and clinicians. There have been no systematic appraisals of how Twitter is used for cardiovascular disease. METHODS: Twitter content was analysed for cardiovascular-related keywords in March 2015 and 2016. 400 randomly selected tweets were qualitatively analysed. RESULTS: In March 2016 there were 2,794 mentions of #HeartFailure, 6,792 of #HeartAttack, 3,492 of #Hypertension and 1,952 of #AtrialFibrillation...

OBJECTIVE: We assessed the hypothesis that interstitial myocardial fibrosis measured by cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) predicts left ventricular (LV) beneficial remodeling in non-ischemic dilated cardiomyopathy (NIDCM) after heart failure (HF) treatment including mineralocorticoid receptor antagonists (MRA). BACKGROUND: The myocardial longitudinal relaxation time (T1) on CMR, can quantify myocardial fibrosis in the presence or absence of visually detectable late gadolinium (Gd) enhancement (LGE) MRA treatment produces beneficial remodeling in NIDCM...

AIMS: The Kansas City Cardiomyopathy Questionnaire (KCCQ) has emerged as a patient-centered, heart failure-specific health status measure. It currently lacks routine and widespread use in clinical practice or trials. The purpose of this study was to examine the correlation between KCCQ and cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET) parameters and clinical outcomes, in comparison with the New York Heart Association (NYHA) functional classification. METHODS AND RESULTS: We performed a single-centered, observational analysis of 432 patients who presented to the Heart Failure Department, completed the KCCQ, and underwent CPET...

: Obesity has been shown to be a risk factor for heart failure, but whether the association varies by age is not understood. AIM: To examine the impact of obesity/overweight on the risk of developing heart failure in women of different ages by analysing prospective data from 2 population studies. METHODS: Data were obtained from the Population Study of Women in Gothenburg and the Gerontological and Geriatric Population Studies concerning Body Mass Index (BMI) collected in 1980 or later...

BACKGROUND: Beliefs around deactivation of a left ventricular assist device (LVAD) vary substantially between clinicians, institutions, and patients. Therefore, we sought to understand perspectives regarding LVAD deactivation among cardiology and hospice/palliative medicine (HPM) clinicians. METHODS AND RESULTS: We administered a 41-item survey via electronic mail to members of 3 cardiology and 1 HPM professional societies. A convergent parallel mixed methods design was used...
