OBJECTIVES: This study evaluated whether alpha-blocker (AB) use following an admission for heart failure (HF) was associated with an increased risk of HF readmission or death. BACKGROUND: ABs, found to increase the risk of HF in the ALLHAT (Antihypertensive and Lipid Lowering Treatment to Prevent Heart Attack Trial) trial, are commonly used for prostatic hypertrophy, including in those with or at risk for HF. METHODS: This propensity score-matched cohort study included patients discharged from a Veterans Affairs hospital between January 2002 and September 2015 with a primary diagnosis of HF and ascertained AB use at discharge...

OBJECTIVES: This study performed a retrospective outcome analyses of a large cohort of mixed ejection fraction patients admitted for acute heart failure (HF), whose inpatient care was guided by individual quantitative blood volume analysis (BVA) results. BACKGROUND: Decongestion strategies in patients hospitalized for HF are based on clinical assessment of volume and have not integrated a quantitative intravascular volume metric. METHODS: Propensity score control matching analysis was performed in 245 consecutive HF admissions to a community hospital (September 2007 to April 2014; 78 ± 10 years of age; 50% with HF with reduced ejection fraction [HFrEF]; and 30% with Stage 4 chronic kidney disease)...

In the last decade, there has been renewed interest in the study of the right ventricle. It is now well established that right ventricular function is a strong predictor of mortality, not only in heart failure but also in pulmonary hypertension, congenital heart disease, and cardiothoracic surgery. The right ventricle is part of a cardiopulmonary unit with connections to the pulmonary circulation, venous return, atria, and left ventricle. In this context, ventriculoarterial coupling, interventricular interactions, and pericardial constraint become important to understand right ventricular adaptation to injury or abnormal loading conditions...

OBJECTIVES: This study sought to describe the incidence, determinants, and prognostic impact of cardiogenic shock (CS) in takotsubo syndrome (TTS). BACKGROUND: TTS can be associated with severe hemodynamic instability. The prognostic implication of CS has not been well characterized in large studies of TTS. METHODS: We analyzed patients with a definitive TTS diagnosis (modified Mayo criteria) who were recruited for the National RETAKO (Registry on Takotsubo Syndrome) trial from 2003 to 2016...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this paper is to compare various measures of adiposity with risk for incident hospitalized heart failure (HF) with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) and reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF). BACKGROUND: Obesity is a risk factor for HF, particularly HFpEF. It is unknown which measures of adiposity, including anthropometrics and computed tomography (CT)-measured fat area, are most predictive of HF subtypes. METHODS: We studied 1,806 participants of the MESA (Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis) study without baseline cardiovascular disease who underwent anthropometrics (body mass index [BMI] and waist circumference) and an abdominal CT...

OBJECTIVES: This study aims to characterize caregivers of patients considering destination therapy left ventricular assist device (DT-LVAD) and evaluate the effectiveness of a shared decision-making (SDM) intervention. BACKGROUND: Caregivers play an integral role in the care of patients with chronic illness. At the extreme, pursuing a DT-LVAD is a major preference-sensitive decision that requires high-level caregiver engagement. Yet, little is known about caregivers of patients considering DT-LVAD, and there is a paucity of research on the involvement of caregivers in medical decision-making...

OBJECTIVES: This study prospectively examined physical activity levels and the incidence of heart failure (HF) in 137,303 women, ages 50 to 79 years, and examined a subset of 35,272 women who, it was determined, had HF with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) and HF with reduced EF (HFrEF). BACKGROUND: The role of physical activity in HF risk among older women is unclear, particularly for incidence of HFpEF or HFrEF. METHODS: Women were free of HF and reported ability to walk at least 1 block without assistance at baseline...

OBJECTIVES: The goal of this study was to test the effects of long-chain omega-3 fatty acid supplementation on omega-3 levels, depressive symptoms, and other psychosocial factors, as well as other chronic heart failure (CHF)-related functional measures. BACKGROUND: Patients with CHF and depression had low blood omega-3 concentrations that were associated with an elevated risk of mortality. METHODS: This study was a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled pilot clinical trial using a 400/200 eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA)/docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) fish oil at 2 g and an almost pure EPA at 2 g, compared with a matched placebo, daily for 12 weeks for patients with CHF and major depressive disorder...

OBJECTIVES: This study sought to evaluate and contribute to the limited data on U.S. hospital practice patterns with respect to respiratory vaccination in patients hospitalized with heart failure (HF). BACKGROUND: Respiratory infection is a major driver of morbidity in patients with HF, and many influenza and pneumococcal infections may be prevented by vaccination. METHODS: We evaluated patients hospitalized at centers participating in the Get With The Guidelines-HF (GWTG-HF) registry from October 2012 to March 2017...
