OBJECTIVES: This study sought to determine outcomes of adult recipients of early adolescent (EA) (10 to 14 years) donor hearts. BACKGROUND: Despite a shortage of donor organs, EA donor hearts (not used for pediatric patients) are seldom used for adults because of theoretical concerns for lack of hormonal activation and changes in left ventricular mass. Nonetheless, the outcomes of adult transplantation using EA donor hearts are not clearly established. METHODS: All adult (≥18 years of age) heart transplant recipients in the United Network for Organ Sharing database between April 1994 and September 2015 were eligible for this analysis...

OBJECTIVES: This study assessed patient and physician perceptions of heart failure (HF) disease severity and treatment options. BACKGROUND: The prognosis for ambulatory patients with advanced HF on medical therapy is uncertain, yet has important implications for decision making regarding transplantation and left ventricular assist device (LVAD) placement. METHODS: Ambulatory patients with advanced HF (New York Heart Association functional class III to IV, Interagency Registry for Mechanically Assisted Circulatory Support profiles 4 to 7) on optimized medical therapy were enrolled across 11 centers...

OBJECTIVES: This study examined the association of aldosterone and plasma renin activity (PRA) with incident cardiovascular disease (CVD), using a composite endpoint of coronary heart disease, stroke, and/or heart failure and mortality among African Americans in the Jackson Heart Study. BACKGROUND: There is a paucity of data for the association of aldosterone and PRA with incident CVD or all-cause mortality among community-dwelling African Americans. METHODS: A total of 4,985 African American adults, 21 to 94 years of age, were followed for 12 years...

More than 2,400 continuous-flow left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) are implanted each year in the United States alone. Both the number of patients living with LVADs and the life expectancy of these patients are increasing. As a result, patients with LVADs are increasingly encountered by non-LVAD specialists who do not have training in managing advanced heart failure for general medical care, cardiovascular procedures, and other subspecialty care. An understanding of the initial evaluation and management of patients with LVADs is now an essential skill for many health care providers...

OBJECTIVES: This study sought to evaluate the effectiveness of hydralazine-isosorbide dinitrate (H-ISDN) in African Americans with heart failure (HF) with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF). BACKGROUND: Among African-American patients with HFrEF, H-ISDN was found to improve quality of life and lower HF-related hospitalization and mortality rates in the A-HEFT (African-American Heart Failure Trial). Few studies have evaluated the effectiveness of this therapy in clinical practice...

OBJECTIVES: The goal of this study was to assess: 1) the intrarenal flow in heart failure (HF) patients during the transition from euvolemia to intravascular volume overload; and 2) the relationship between intrarenal flow and diuretic efficiency. BACKGROUND: Intrarenal blood flow alterations may help to better understand impaired volume handling in HF. METHODS: Resistance index (RI) and venous impedance index (VII) were assessed in 6 healthy subjects, 40 euvolemic HF patients with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF) and 10 HF patients with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF)...

REVIEW
Franz H Messerli, Stefano F Rimoldi, Sripal Bangalore
Longstanding hypertension ultimately leads to heart failure (HF), and as a consequence most patients with HF have a history of hypertension. Conversely, absence of hypertension in middle age is associated with lower risks for incident HF across the remaining life course. Cardiac remodeling to a predominant pressure overload consists of diastolic dysfunction and concentric left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy. When pressure overload is sustained, diastolic dysfunction progresses, filling of the concentric remodeled LV decreases, and HF with preserved ejection fraction ensues...
