The study will assess the effects of 6 weeks of stable sacubitril/valsartan therapy, as compared with valsartan therapy, on cardiac oxygen consumption and the efficiency of cardiac work in...
Real-world evidence of the clinical course of patient symptoms following initiation of sacubitril/valsartan via PROs with a patient-centered study design will provide important evidence of...
The purpose of this randomized, actively controlled, double-blind study is to demonstrate the superiority of sacubitril/valsartan over enalapril in increasing non-sedentary physical activi...
The purpose of the study is to describe the heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF) patient population receiving sacubitril/valsartan treatment.
Chronic Heart Failure (CHF) is a frequent pathology burdened with mortality and significant morbidity. Sleep apnea syndrome (SAS) is frequently associated with CHF in 20% to 75% of cases. ...
There is a paucity of data about the mechanisms by which sacubitril/valsartan (also known as LCZ696) improves outcomes in patients with heart failure. Specifically, the effects of sacubitril/valsartan...
The optimal use of sacubitril/valsartan in clinical practice needs further investigation, in particular for patients with multiple comorbidities, as such patients are usually poorly represented in cli...
Following the results of the PARADIGM-HF trial, the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) guidelines recommend sacubitril/valsartan to replace ACE inhibitors in ambulatory patients with heart failure w...
Sacubitril/valsartan (LCZ696) is a first-in-class, novel-acting, angiotensin receptor neprilysin inhibitor (ARNI) that provides inhibition of neprilysin and the angiotensin (AT1) receptor. A recent cl...
Sacubitril/valsartan has been established as an effective treatment for heart failure (HF) with reduced ejection fraction based on clinical trial data; however, little is known about its use or impact...
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.
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.
Heart murmurs which are systolic in timing. They occur between the first and the second HEART SOUNDS, between the closure of MITRAL VALVE and TRICUSPID VALVE and the closure of semilunar aortic and pulmonary valves. Systolic murmurs include ejection murmurs and regurgitant murmurs.
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.
