This study is a prospective, multi-center, randomized, controlled, double blinded, pivotal trial to study the safety and efficacy of the WiSE-LV System for Cardiac Re-synchronization Thera...
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...
Heart failure causes significant morbidity and mortality and is the most rapidly increasing cardiovascular diagnosis in North America overall prevalence is estimated at 0.4% to 2.4%. Rece...
Get With The Guidelines-Heart Failure is designed to improve the quality of care in patients hospitalized with heart failure. The program aims to help ensure that eligible patients are ini...
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 nut...
Long-term data on outcomes of participants hospitalized with heart failure (HF) from low and middle-income countries are limited.
The primary aim of the TRIAGE-HF trial was to correlate cardiac implantable electronic device-generated heart failure risk status (HFRS) with signs, symptoms, and patient behaviours classically associ...
This study evaluated whether alpha-blocker (AB) use following an admission for heart failure (HF) was associated with an increased risk of HF readmission or death.
Using the example of Russian and European clinical guidelines on diagnosis and treatment of heart failure the article addressed issues, which may arise from word-for-word or component-wise translation...
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 contraction during SYSTOLE leading to defective cardiac emptying.
Heart failure caused by abnormal myocardial relaxation during DIASTOLE leading to defective cardiac filling.
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).
