This review highlights recent advances in the diagnosis and management of children with heart failure. We emphasize the clinical approach to patient care in the areas of acute decompensated heart failure, chronic heart failure, and failure of the patient with single ventricle physiology.

Intensive research has shed light to the utilization of novel biomarkers which facilitate the diagnosis and prognosis of patients with different medical problems. One of the most important biomarkers ...
Heart failure is a global public health problem, with more than 37 million patients living with heart failure around the world. Heart failure with preserved ejection fraction is an increasingly common...
Despite medical advancements, the prognosis of patients with heart failure remains poor. While echocardiography and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging remain at the forefront of diagnosing and monitor...
This study sought to describe the patterns of heart failure (HF)-exacerbating medications used among older adults hospitalized for HF and to examine determinants of HF-exacerbating medication use.
To collect information on pediatric patients receiving Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT) with permanent biventricular pacing (BVP) as a method of treating chronic heart failure.
This study was designed to determine if patients, who have both high blood pressure and heart failure and are currently receiving drug treatment for heart failure, have an improvement in t...
Heart failure is a condition that occurs when the heart muscle weakens and no longer contracts normally. Half of these patients have an irregularity of heart rhythm called atrial fibrilla...
The purpose of the study is to determine whether use of the Berlin Heart EXCOR Pediatric VAD for bridge-to-transplant is associated with a reasonable assurance of safety and probable benef...
1. To Identify the role of aldosterone antagonist in patients of heart failure with preserved ejection fraction. 2. Portray the health profile of heart failure patients admitted in...
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.
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.
Heart failure caused by abnormal myocardial relaxation during DIASTOLE leading to defective cardiac filling.
Heart failure caused by abnormal myocardial contraction during SYSTOLE leading to defective cardiac emptying.
Agents that have a strengthening effect on the heart or that can increase cardiac output. They may be CARDIAC GLYCOSIDES; SYMPATHOMIMETICS; or other drugs. They are used after MYOCARDIAL INFARCT; CARDIAC SURGICAL PROCEDURES; in SHOCK; or in congestive heart failure (HEART FAILURE).
Pediatrics is the general medicine of childhood. Because of the developmental processes (psychological and physical) of childhood, the involvement of parents, and the social management of conditions at home and at school, pediatrics is a specialty. With ...
