The study measure multiple neurohormones in patients with heart failure being treated with Sacubitril/Valsartan in increasing doses over an 8 week period.
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...
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...
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. ...
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 Prospective comparison of angiotensin receptor antagonist Valsartan and neprilysin inhibitor Sacubitril with angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor (enalapril) to determine impact on Global Morta...
A reduction in the rate of death and hospitalisations in patients with heart failure (HF) with reduced ejection fraction receiving sacubitril/valsartan compared to enalapril was demonstrated in the PA...
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...
Heart failure affects over 1 million people in Germany and contributes to morbidity, mortality, and high healthcare costs. A recent large randomized controlled trial compared the novel compound sacub...
A 58-year-old man with previous mitral/aortic mechanical-valve replacement, aortic root repair, and coronary disease developed severe left-ventricular dysfunction following AV-node ablation/single-cha...
A pharmaceutical preparation of amlodipine and valsartan that is used for the treatment of HYPERTENSION.
A tetrazole derivative and ANGIOTENSIN II TYPE 1 RECEPTOR BLOCKER that is used to treat HYPERTENSION.
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.
