REVIEW
Jennifer T Thibodeau, Mark H Drazner
Despite advances in biomarkers and technology, the clinical examination (i.e., a history and physical examination) remains central in the management of patients with heart failure. Specifically, the clinical examination allows noninvasive assessment of the patient's underlying hemodynamic state, based on whether the patient has elevated ventricular filling pressures and/or an inadequate cardiac index. Such assessments provide important prognostic information and help guide therapeutic decision-making. Herein, we critically assess the utility of the clinical examination for these purposes and provide practical tips we have gleaned from our practice in the field of advanced heart failure...

OBJECTIVES: This study sought to determine the spectrum of brain lesions seen in heart failure (HF) patients and the extent to which lesion type contributes to cognitive impairment. BACKGROUND: Cognitive deficits have been reported in patients with HF. METHODS: A total of 148 systolic and diastolic HF patients (mean age 64 ± 11 years; 16% female; mean left ventricular ejection fraction 43 ± 8%) were extensively evaluated within 2 days by cardiological, neurological, and neuropsychological testing and brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)...

OBJECTIVES: This study sought to obtain an approximation of the true incidence of myocarditis by systematic screening of patients at risk using cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) in a tertiary care center. BACKGROUND: Underdiagnosis of myocarditis and resulting uncertainty about its incidence remain a clinical dilemma. The authors hypothesized that systematic screening of patients presenting with angina-like symptoms, elevated troponin T, and no significant coronary artery disease using cardiac CMR will provide an approximation of the true incidence of myocarditis...

OBJECTIVES: This study sought to compare the performance of 2 health-related quality of life (HRQOL) questionnaires in patients with heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF). BACKGROUND: The ability to accurately assess HRQOL over time is important in the care of patients with heart failure. The validity and reliability of HRQOL tools including the Minnesota Living with Heart Failure Questionnaire (MLHFQ) and the Kansas City Cardiomyopathy Questionnaire (KCCQ) has not been fully determined or compared in patients with HFpEF...

OBJECTIVES: The authors sought to define the invasive hemodynamic correlates of peak oxygen consumption (Vo2 ) in both supine and upright exercise in heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) and evaluate its diagnostic role as a method to discriminate HFpEF from noncardiac etiologies of dyspnea (NCD). BACKGROUND: Peak Vo2 is depressed in patients with HFpEF. The hemodynamic correlates of reduced peak Vo2 and its role in the clinical evaluation of HFpEF are unclear...

OBJECTIVES: The authors sought to confirm a subgroup analysis of the prior FIX-HF-5 (Evaluate Safety and Efficacy of the OPTIMIZER System in Subjects With Moderate-to-Severe Heart Failure) study showing that cardiac contractility modulation (CCM) improved exercise tolerance (ET) and quality of life in patients with ejection fractions between 25% and 45%. BACKGROUND: CCM therapy for New York Heart Association (NYHA) functional class III and IV heart failure (HF) patients consists of nonexcitatory electrical signals delivered to the heart during the absolute refractory period...

OBJECTIVES: The authors sought to report the prevalence, clinical associations, and prognostic consequences of malnutrition in outpatients with heart failure (HF). BACKGROUND: Malnutrition may be common in HF and associated with adverse outcomes, but few data exist. METHODS: We applied the geriatric nutritional risk index (GNRI), controlling nutritional status (CONUT) score, and prognostic nutritional index (PNI) to consecutive patients referred with suspected HF to a clinic serving a local population (n = 550,000)...

OBJECTIVES: Evaluate whether PCI in combination with optimal medical therapy (OMT) will reduce all-cause death and hospitalization for HF compared to a strategy of OMT alone. BACKGROUND: Ischemic cardiomyopathy (ICM) is the most common cause of heart failure (HF) and is associated with significant mortality and morbidity. Surgical revascularization has been shown to improve long-term outcomes in some patients, but surgery itself carries a major early hazard. Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) may allow a better balance between risk and benefit...
