Nowadays, heart failure (HF) related morbidity and mortality rate is increasing globally. Younger populations happen to be more affected by HF in sub- Saharan African than the western countries. Even though medications, low sodium diet, regular exercise, and weight monitoring are essential to control heart failure symptoms and its exacerbation, poor adherence to these self-care recommendations is contributing to an increased in hospitalization, morbidity, and mortality. Therefore, this study aimed to assess...
Telemedical Interventional Management in Heart Failure II (TIM-HF2), a randomised, controlled trial investigating the impact of telemedicine on unplanned cardiovascular hospitalisations and mortality in heart failure patients: study design and description of the intervention.
Heart failure (HF) is a complex, chronic condition that is associated with debilitating symptoms, all of which necessitate close follow-up by health care providers. Lack of disease monitoring may result in increased mortality and more frequent hospital readmissions for decompensated HF. Remote patient management (RPM) in this patient population may help to detect early signs and symptoms of cardiac decompensation, thus enabling a prompt initiation of the appropriate treatment and care before a manifestation...
Self-care is vital for the successful management of heart failure. Mobile health can enable patients with heart failure to perform effective self-care. This article describes the theory-guided development and beta testing of a mobile application intervention to support self-care and increase symptom awareness in community-dwelling patients with heart failure. Ten participants entered physiologic data, answered qualitative questions about symptoms, and reviewed heart failure education within the HF App daily...
Heart failure is an increasingly prevalent chronic condition which causes substantial morbidity and mortality, placing an increasing economic burden on health care. Hospitalizations as a result of heart failure are projected to increase considerably over the next two decades. A robust restructuring of existing heart failure treatment models in the UK is needed to enable an integrated seamless transition of care across the community, primary care and hospital networks. This has to be achieved with the patien...
Loop diuretics remain the cornerstone of congestion management in contemporary chronic heart failure care. However, their use is not supported by high quality data, and there is doubt about the safety in the outpatient heart failure setting. Still, congestion is related to a worse outcome, and there is general consensus among experts that congestion should not be tolerated in heart failure patients. Recommendations in international guidelines, regarding decongestion strategies in chronic heart failure, are ...
The UK National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (UK-NICE) and European Society of Cardiology (ESC) guidelines advise natriuretic peptide (NP) assessment in patients presenting to primary care with symptoms possibly due to chronic heart failure (HF), to determine need for specialist involvement. This prospective service evaluation aimed to describe the diagnostic and prognostic utility of these guidelines.
Despite advances in therapy, heart failure (HF) patients have significant symptom burden, and poor quality of life. However, data on palliative care (PC) utilization in this population are scarce. We sought to assess national trends in PC utilization in patients admitted with acute HF.
This paper reviews performance measure in health, their importance, and methodologic issues, focusing on metrics for health failure patients. Quality measures are instruments to assess structural aspects or processes of care aiming to guarantee that optimal patient outcomes are achieved. As heart failure is a chronic condition in which established therapies reduce mortality and hospital admissions, there are quite a lot of initiatives that aim to monitor for quality of care and to coordinate the disease man...
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.
Diabetes is a common disease in heart failure and its prevalence ranges from 10 to 30%. ST-2 is a novel biomarker of myocardial fibrosis and remodelling in heart failure and may be involved in the inflammatory process of diabetes mellitus. In this study, we sought: to evaluate levels of ST-2 and B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) in groups with acute heart failure with and without diabetes; to analyse the prognostic impact of ST-2 over a 6-month follow-up period.

Heart transplantation is a viable option for many patients with end-stage heart failure. An extensive evaluation by specialists and in-depth testing are done to determine the risks of advanced therapies including the left ventricular assist device, since most patients need one to safely make it to transplant. A multidisciplinary approach is the most effective approach to successfully progressing a patient to transplant safely and helping him or her prosper after transplant.

Response by Kumbhani et al to Letters Regarding Article, "Association Between Hospital Volume, Processes of Care, and Outcomes in Patients Admitted With Heart Failure: Insights From Get With The Guidelines-Heart Failure".
Heart transplantation is the gold standard treatment for advanced heart failure. Left ventricular assist devices (LVADs), despite being a good option for these patients, are not quite available in developing countries. Time spent in heart transplant waiting list has increased lately even in regions where the number of transplants has also risen showing that a new strategy should be sought.
The aim of this study was to critically analyse and describe gender differences related to self-care among patients with chronic heart failure (HF).
Influenza infection is associated with increased risk for mortality and hospitalization in heart failure patients. Although there are no published randomized controlled trials examining the effect of influenza vaccination on clinical outcomes in heart failure patients, the effect has been examined in observational cohort studies. Nevertheless, results are inconsistent due partly to limited power with small sample sizes and use of different definitions of outcomes. We therefore aimed to conduct a systematic ...
We sought to analyze the trends and resource utilization of adult congenital heart disease (ACHD)-related heart failure admissions at children's hospitals. Heart failure admissions in patients with ACHD continue to rise at both pediatric and adult care facilities. Data from the Pediatric Health Information Systems database (2005 to 2015) were used to identify patients (≥18 years) admitted with congenital heart disease (745.xx-747.xx) and principal diagnosis of heart failure (428.xx). High resource use (HR...
Heart failure or congestive heart failure remains a major public health concern on the global scale. End-stage heart failure is a severe disease where the heart is unable to pump enough oxygen and nutrients to other tissues and organs of the body. When the lines of treatment of heart failure such as lifestyle adjustments, medical management, and device therapy fail, a patient may be deemed a candidate for heart transplantation. This article reviews the history of heart transplantation, complications post-he...
Care for patients with heart failure (HF) in Poland requires improvement.
This study sought to determine whether influenza infection increases morbidity and mortality in patients hospitalized with heart failure (HF).
Advanced imaging modalities provide essential anatomic and spatial information in patients with complex heart disease. Two-dimensional imaging can be limited in the extent to which true 3-dimensional (3D) relationships are represented. The application of 3D printing technology has increased the creation of physical models that overcomes the limitations of a 2D screen. Many groups have reported the use of 3D printing for preprocedural planning in patients with different causes of heart failure. This paper re...
Iron deficiency is an extremely common co-morbidity in patients with heart failure, affecting up to 50% of all ambulatory patients. It is associated with reduced exercise capacity and physical well-being and reduced quality of life. Cutoff values have been identified for diagnosing iron deficiency in heart failure with reduced ejection fraction as serum ferritin,
