Prevalence of heart failure is growing up. To the advanced stages of the disease, prognosis is bleak with high mortality rate.Cardiac resynchronization has been developped in order to respond to this issue but one third of patients are considering as non responders. For this patients, also non candidates for heart transplant, mechanical circulatory support could represent an alternative to an optimal medical treatment.
However, no randomised clinical trial has proved it yet. Morever, conditions of the feasibilty (in real conditions)of such a trial in Europe and the acceptance of randomisation by the focused patients are not well knowed.
The objectives of this pilot randomised trial are to argue feasibility and acceptance, also to update efficacity and quality of life data by comparing results betweew "heartmate II left ventricular assist device group" and control (optimal medical treatment) group.

This is a prospective, multi-center, open-label, single-arm feasibility trial to assess device safety and efficacy of the Cordella™ Heart Failure System in 10 NYHA Class III heart failur...
CardioMEMS is an implantable wireless hemodynamic monitoring system which can transmit the pulmonary artery pressure. This device is FDA approved to be used as a diagnostic tool to help ma...
Rationale: End-stage congestive heart failure is a serious invalidating condition with a poor prognosis and increasing incidence. Non-randomized observations showed peritoneal dialysis (PD...
The mechanisms behind heart failure are largely unknown. Despite an increasing arsenal of pharmacological therapies, cardiovascular disease is still the most common cause of death in the w...
This study will assess the safety and efficacy of DITPA relative to placebo in patients with New York Heart Association (NYHA) class III or IV congestive heart failure (CHF) who have low s...
We report the first patient experiences with the CardioMEMS device in the Erasmus MC Thorax Center in the Netherlands. In line with clinical trial evidence, the device is applicable in patients with c...
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 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...
Our aim was to evaluate the association between the soluble form of neprilysin (sNEP) levels and long-term all-cause, cardiovascular, and acute heart failure (AHF) recurrent admissions in an ambulator...
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...
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.
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).
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.
