AIMS: To investigate whether the presence of atrial fibrillation (AF) is independently associated with adverse short-term outcomes in patients diagnosed with acute heart failure (AHF) in the emergency department (ED). METHODS: We performed a secondary analysis of patients included in the EAHFE registries 4&5. Patients were divided by the presence of sinus rhythm (SR) or AF at ED arrival. The primary outcome was 30-day all-cause mortality. Secondary outcomes included the 30-day post-discharge combined endpoint of ED revisit or hospitalisation due to AHF and all-cause mortality...

BACKGROUND: Systemic congestion, evaluated by estimated plasma volume status (ePVS), is associated with in-hospital mortality in acute heart failure (AHF). However, the diagnostic and prognostic value of ePVS in patients with acute dyspnea has been insufficiently studied. OBJECTIVES: To assess the association between the first ePVS calculated from blood samples on admission in the emergency department (ED) and discharge diagnosis of AHF and in-hospital mortality in patients admitted for acute dyspnea...

BACKGROUND: Reliability of left ventricular function measurements depends on actual biological conditions, repeated registrations and their analyses. OBJECTIVE: To investigate test-retest reliability of speckle-tracking-derived strain measurements and its determinants compared to the conventional parameters, such as ejection fraction (EF), LV volumes and mitral annular plane systolic excursion (MAPSE). METHODS: In 30 patients with a wide range of left ventricular function (mean EF 46...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Myocardial infarction triggers an inflammatory response involved in cardiac repair. We studied the association of the interleukin 6 (IL-6) cascade with infarct size and cardiac function after ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). METHODS: In 369 STEMI patients IL-6, soluble IL-6 receptor (sIL-6R), and soluble glycoprotein (sgp) 130 were measured at baseline (hospital admission), 24 h, 2 weeks, 7 weeks, 4 months, and 1 year post-PCI and sIL-6R/IL-6 ratio was calculated...

BACKGROUND: Left ventricular (LV) dysfunction due to anthracycline-induced cardiotoxicity (AIC) has been believed to be irreversible. However, this has not been confirmed and standard medical treatment for heart failure (HF) including renin-angiotensin inhibitors and β-blockers may lead to its recovery. METHODS AND RESULTS: We thus retrospectively studied 350 cancer patients receiving anthracycline-based chemotherapy from 2001 to 2015 in our institution. Fifty-two patients (14...

BACKGROUND: Heart failure is heterogeneous in aetiology, pathophysiology, and presentation. Despite this diversity, clinical trials of patients hospitalized for HF deal with this problem as a single entity, which may be one reason for repeated failures. METHODS: The first EuroHeart Failure Survey screened consecutive deaths and discharges of patients with suspected heart failure during 2000-2001. Patients were sorted into seven mutually exclusive hierarchical presentations: (1) with cardiac arrest/ventricular arrhythmia; (2) with acute coronary syndrome; (3) with rapid atrial fibrillation; (4) with acute breathlessness; (5) with other symptoms/signs such as peripheral oedema; (6) with stable symptoms; and (7) others in whom the contribution of HF to admission was not clear...

BACKGROUND: Ventricular tachycardia clustering (VTc) is associated with a worse clinical outcome in patients with non-ischemic dilated cardiomyopathy (NI-DCM) and implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD); however, its role after catheter ablation (CA) has still not been investigated. Aim of this study was to evaluate the prognostic significance of VTc after CA. METHODS: 96 consecutive patients (59 ± 13 years, 82% males) with NI-DCM underwent CA for drug-refractory VT...

AIMS: Estimated plasma volume status (ePVS) predicts prognosis in patients with heart failure (HF). It remains unclear whether admission, discharge or change ePVS best predicts post-discharge outcome in patients with acute decompensated heart failure (ADHF). METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed three cohort studies: 383 patients admitted at the Tokyo Medical University hospital, 165 patients admitted at the Centro Hospitalar do Porto and 164 patients admitted at the Université de Lorraine (ICALOR study)...

Cardiac arrhythmias remain a common challenge and are associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Effective and safe rhythm control strategies are a primary, yet unmet need in everyday clinical practice. Despite significant pharmacological and technological advances, including catheter ablation and device-based therapies, the development of more effective alternatives is of significant interest to increase quality of life and to reduce symptom burden, hospitalizations and mortality. The mechanistic understanding of pathophysiological pathways underlying cardiac arrhythmias has advanced profoundly, opening up novel avenues for mechanism-based therapeutic approaches...

PURPOSE: While statins are used as first-line treatments for high-risk patients with hypercholesterolemia, statin monotherapy is often insufficient to achieve target low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) levels. Second-line treatment options include up-titration of statin dose, switching to a more potent statin, or combination therapy, e.g., with ezetimibe. The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of adding ezetimibe to simvastatin, atorvastatin, or rosuvastatin monotherapy versus doubling the dosage or switching to a higher-potency statin in a population of patients with hypocholesterolemia at high risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and who had been previously treated with a statin...

INTRODUCTION: The current way to assess the risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) is to measure conventional lipid and lipoprotein cholesterol fractions. Despite the success of statin treatment, residual cardiovascular risk remains high. Therefore, the value of extensive serum apolipoprotein (apo) profiling to assess the risk of ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and of major adverse cardiac events (MACE) in patients with STEMI was investigated in a case-control design...

BACKGROUND: Patients with chronic conditions, such as heart failure, swim regularly and most rehabilitation exercises are conducted in warm hydrotherapy pools. However, little is known about the acute effects of warm water immersion (WWI) on cardiac haemodynamics in patients with chronic heart failure (CHF). METHODS: Seventeen patients with CHF (NYHA I and II; mean age 67 years, 88% male, mean left ventricular ejection fraction 33%) and 10 age-matched normal subjects were immersed up to the neck in a hydrotherapy pool (33-35 °C)...

BACKGROUND: Sudden cardiac death (SCD) is an important cause of death in patients with left-ventricular systolic dysfunction (LVSD). Mineralocorticoid receptor antagonists (MRAs) may attenuate this risk. We aimed to assess the impact of MRAs on SCD in patients with LVSD. METHODS: A fixed-effect meta-analysis at individual patient-level was performed using 11,032 patients recruited in three placebo-controlled randomized trials: Randomized Aldactone Evaluation Study (RALES), Eplerenone Post Acute Myocardial Infarction Heart Failure Efficacy and Survival Study (EPHESUS), and Eplerenone in Mild Patients Hospitalization and Survival Study in Heart Failure (EMPHASIS-HF)...

Late perforation of the atrial wall after pacemaker implantation frequently remains asymptomatic but may cause chest pain, dyspnea or syncope. Perforation can also lead to rarer complications such as hemoptysis and pneumopericardium. We present the case of a patient who developed progressive hemoptysis 3 years after a dual-chamber pacemaker implantation. Pacemaker interrogation showed stable impedance of the right atrial lead and stable pacing threshold values. CT revealed perforation of the right atrial wall by the RA-lead with consecutive pneumopericardium and diffuse lung bleeding of the right middle lobe...

Cardiovascular disease is the most frequent non-malignant cause of morbidity and mortality in adult survivors of childhood or adolescent cancer. Thrombin generation (TG) analysis gives insight in hypercoagulability as an important mechanism linked to cardiovascular risk factors (CVRFs). In 200 individuals, from the cardiac and vascular late sequelae in long-term survivors of childhood cancer study, TG in platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and platelet-free plasma (PFP) at 1pM tissue factor was investigated. Endogenous thrombin potential (ETP) and peak height were the analysed parameters of a TG curve...
