Patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) have an increased risk for the development of heart failure (HF). In this study, we aimed to detect predictors of HF hospitalizations in an unselected AF population.

Patients with heart failure and preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) tend to be older and have a high co-morbidity burden. The impact of co-morbid conditions and sociodemographic risk factors on outcom...
Hospitalizations often occur multiple times during the disease course of a heart failure (HF) patient. However, repeated hospitalizations have not been explored in a fulsome way in this setting. We in...
The heart failure epidemic is driven mainly by population aging and the improving survival of patients with cardiovascular risk factors. Aging heart failure patients are affected by multiple concurren...
Digoxin has been shown to reduce heart failure hospitalizations with a neutral effect on mortality. It is unknown whether there is heterogeneity of treatment effect for digitalis therapy according to ...
Heart failure is a common and serious cardiovascular complication of type 2 diabetes. Many antihyperglycemic drugs can increase the risk of heart failure. However, it is commonly believed that metform...
Evaluation of the risk factors associated with Heart Failure (HF) worsening (measured by hospitalizations and emergency visits because of HF exacerbations) in Spanish patients with Atrial ...
This is an prospective study conducted in a Chinese heart failure population. The study investigates the effects of cardiovascular disease risk factors such as lifestyle behaviors,biomarke...
The aims of this randomized, clinical trial are to develop and test a multileveled pharmacy-based program to improve the care of patients with heart failure. Risk factors for deterioration...
CardioMEMS is an implantable wireless hemodynamic monitoring system which can transmit the pulmonary artery pressure. This device is FDA approved to be used as a diagnostic tool to help ma...
In the Middle East and the Gulf, the general population have high cardiovascular risks like diabetes, hypertension, smoking and obesity. The average age of a patient with an acute coronary...
Enlargement of the HEART, usually indicated by a cardiothoracic ratio above 0.50. Heart enlargement may involve the right, the left, or both HEART VENTRICLES or HEART ATRIA. Cardiomegaly is a nonspecific symptom seen in patients with chronic systolic heart failure (HEART FAILURE) or several forms of CARDIOMYOPATHIES.
A heterogeneous condition in which the heart is unable to pump out sufficient blood to meet the metabolic need of the body. Heart failure can be caused by structural defects, functional abnormalities (VENTRICULAR DYSFUNCTION), or a sudden overload beyond its capacity. Chronic heart failure is more common than acute heart failure which results from sudden insult to cardiac function, such as MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.
A selective beta-1-adrenergic partial agonist. Because it is a partial agonist (DRUG PARTIAL AGONISM) it acts like an agonist when sympathetic activity is low and as an antagonist when sympathetic activity is high. It reduces MYOCARDIAL ISCHEMIA and improves ventricular function in patients with mild to moderate heart failure. In patients with severe heart failure it has been shown to produce benefits in systolic and diastolic function.
A form of CARDIAC MUSCLE disease that is characterized by ventricular dilation, VENTRICULAR DYSFUNCTION, and HEART FAILURE. Risk factors include SMOKING; ALCOHOL DRINKING; HYPERTENSION; INFECTION; PREGNANCY; and mutations in the LMNA gene encoding LAMIN TYPE A, a NUCLEAR LAMINA protein.
Heart failure caused by abnormal myocardial relaxation during DIASTOLE leading to defective cardiac filling.
