The purpose of this registry is to evaluate the effect of BAROSTIM THERAPY with the BAROSTIM NEO system in the commercial setting in subjects recently implanted under the CE-Marked indicat...
The Barostim Neo - Baroreflex Activation Therapy for Heart Failure is a prospective, randomized trial in subjects with reduced ejection fraction heart failure.
The purpose of this registry is to evaluate the effect of BAROSTIM THERAPY with the BAROSTIM NEO System in the commercial setting in subjects recently implanted under the CE-Marked indicat...
The objective of this single center prospective clinical trial is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of carotid Baroreflex Activation Therapy (BAT) in advanced heart failure (HFrEF). Beyo...
The purpose of this clinical trial is to evaluate the potential benefits of a new heart failure diagnostic system for heart failure patients with implanted cardiac resynchronization therap...
Heart failure is associated with significant morbidity and mortality as well as an increasing economic burden. The persistence of heart failure's risk factors, coupled with an aging population, also l...
Barriers in heart failure self-care contribute to heart failure hospitalizations, but geographic differences have not been well-studied. We aimed to compare self-care barriers in heart failure patient...
Heart failure has becoming an increasing medical, economic, and social problem globally. The prevalence of this syndrome is rising, and despite unequivocal positive effects of modern therapy, reductio...
Recognizing the rising prevalence of heart failure in China, patients with heart failure have substantial palliative needs. This review highlights recent evidence on the epidemic of heart failure, ide...
Heart failure is an increasing reason for hospitalization and the leading cause of death in patients with adult congenital heart disease (ACHD). Recently, the European Society of Cardiology and the Am...
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.
A class of drugs whose main indications are the treatment of hypertension and heart failure. They exert their hemodynamic effect mainly by inhibiting the renin-angiotensin system. They also modulate sympathetic nervous system activity and increase prostaglandin synthesis. They cause mainly vasodilation and mild natriuresis without affecting heart rate and contractility.
