RATIONALE & OBJECTIVE: Abnormal cardiac structure and function are common in chronic kidney disease (CKD) and end-stage renal disease (ESRD) and linked with mortality and heart failure. We examined changes in echocardiographic measures during the transition from CKD to ESRD and their associations with post-ESRD mortality. STUDY DESIGN: Prospective study. SETTING & PARTICIPANTS: We studied 417 participants with CKD in the Chronic Renal Insufficiency Cohort (CRIC) who had research echocardiograms during CKD and ESRD...

We present a comparison between three left ventricular assist devices (LVADs): HeartWare (HVAD) (HeartWare International Inc., Framingham, MA, USA), HeartMate II (HMII) and HeartMate III (HMIII) (Thoratec Corp., Pleasanton, CA, USA). To our knowledge, no study to date has aimed at placing these three devices in juxtaposition. Between June 2007 and June 2017, 108 consecutive patients received HMII, n = 77 (71.3%), HVAD, n = 14 (13%), or HM III, n = 17 (15.7%), for end-stage heart failure. Mean age was 63...

Background Fibroblast growth factor-23 (FGF-23) has been hypothesized to play a role in the increased risk of cardiovascular disease in patients with CKD. Methods We identified prospective studies reporting associations between FGF-23 concentration and risk of cardiovascular events. Maximally adjusted risk ratios (RRs) were extracted for each outcome and scaled to a comparison of the top versus bottom third of the baseline FGF-23 concentration, and the results aggregated. Results Depending on the assay used, median FGF-23 concentrations were 43-74 RU/ml and 38-47 pg/ml in 17 general population cohorts; 102-392 RU/ml in nine cohorts of patients with CKD not requiring dialysis; and 79-4212 RU/ml and 2526-5555 pg/ml in eight cohorts of patients on dialysis...

BACKGROUND: Predictive models of CS-AKI include emergency surgery and patients with haemodynamic instability. Our objective was to evaluate the performance of validated predictive models (Thakar and Demirjian) in elective cardiac surgery and to propose a better score in the case of poor performance. METHODS: A prospective, multicentre, observational study was designed. Data were collected from 942 patients undergoing cardiac surgery, after excluding emergency surgery and patients with an intraaortic balloon pump...

Series evaluating the results of isolated tricuspid valve surgery (ITVS) are rare and often limited by small sample size, selection bias, and/or long period of enrollment. Based on a mandatory administrative national database, we collected all consecutive ITVS performed in France during a 2-year period (2013 and 2014), the type of intervention, clinical profile, and in-hospital mortality and complications. During the 2-year period, 241 patients underwent an ITVS in France (84 repairs and 157 replacements). In-hospital mortality was high (10%), and most patients experienced at least 1 complication (65%) with a 19% rate of major complications (death, need for dialysis, or need for mechanical support using extracorporeal membrane oxygenation)...

Beta-blockers are frequently used in dialysis patients because of their cardioprotective properties. However, the effect of beta-blockers on reducing dialysis mortality has not been sufficiently examined to date. Thus, we sought to examine the effects on cardiovascular prognosis of beta-blockers using our outpatient dialysis database. From 389 dialysis patients registered in our database, subjects taking beta-blockers were extracted and matched with patients not taking beta-blockers using propensity scores based on 39 variables...

BACKGROUND: Dialysis-requiring acute kidney injury (D-AKI) is a serious complication in hospitalized heart failure (HF) patients. However, data on national trends are lacking after 2002. METHODS: We used the Nationwide Inpatient Sample (2002-2013) to identify HF hospitalizations with and without D-AKI. We analyzed trends in incidence, in-hospital mortality, length of stay (LoS) and cost. We calculated adjusted odds ratios (aOR) for predictors of D-AKI and for outcomes including in-hospital mortality and adverse discharge (discharge to skilled nursing facilities, nursing homes, etc)...

BACKGROUND: Mortality for cardiovascular disease (CVD) in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) is higher. In the end-stage renal disease (ESRD) the mortality is 20 times greater in comparison with general population. Natriuretic peptides, particularly type-B natriuretic peptide (BNP) have been studied as potential markers of risk of cardiovascular (CV) mortality. The aim of this paper is to determine whether BNP acts as a prognostic marker for CV mortality in patients with ESRD...

Aim: To establish the role of heart failure (HF) and dialysis (D) in the prognosis of diabetic patients with critical limb ischemia and foot ulcers (FUs). Methods: Consecutive diabetic patients with ischemic FUs who referred to our Diabetic Foot Centre were prospectively included. All patients underwent a preset limb salvage protocol including peripheral revascularization. According to the presence of HF and D, they were divided in four groups: group 1 without HF and without D defined as ischemic foot (IF); group 2 with HF and without D defined as heart ischemic foot (H-IF); group 3 without HF and with D defined as renal ischemic foot (R-IF); group 4 with HF and with dialysis defined as heart-renal foot (HR-IF)...

Although patient survival is significantly improved by kidney transplantation (KT) in comparison with dialysis, it remains significantly lower than that observed in the general population. Graft function is one of the major determinants of patient survival after KT. Mineralocorticoid receptor antagonists (MRAs) could be of particular interest in this population to improve graft function and treat or prevent cardiovascular (CV) complications. In KT, ischaemia/reperfusion injury is a major factor involved in delayed graft function, which is often associated with inferior long-term graft survival...
