The study is performed to consider the effect of thiamine supplementation on symptoms and signs of patients with heart failure and systolic and diastolic function of left ventricle.
The study is performed to consider the effect of thiamine supplementation versus placebo on symptoms and signs of patients with heart failure systolic and diastolic function of left ventricle.
Heart failure patients (left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF ≤ 40%) are randomized to receive tablets of 300mg or placebo for 1 months in a double-blind fashion. All subjects will be on stable optimal medical therapy according to the present guidelines for at least 3 months before enrolment. At randomization and at study end, echocardiography by a single observer will be performed and assessment of symptoms and signs and quality of life based on self scoring system (from 1 to 7) and objective physical examinations will be done.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Placebo Control, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Treatment

Heart failure (HF) is a major cardiovascular disease with increasing prevalence. Thiamine deficiency is common in HF patients. Previous small studies have shown that thiamine supplementati...
Working Hypothesis: a treatment with thiamine improves functional status and heart function of patients with congestive heart failure when on a diuretic treatment.
Heart failure remains an increasing cause of morbidity and mortality in the United States even in the face of recent advances in the treatment of cardiovascular disease. There is an urgent...
Thyrotoxicosis is a hypermetabolic state in which there is increased utilization of thiamine. Thiamine deficiency has been observed in association with hyperthyroidism. Several studies doc...
Patients who suffer Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD) have a 30-80% incidence of thiamine deficiency causing Wernicke's Encephalopathy (WE). Intravenous (IV) thiamine replacement is standard pra...
Significant efforts are currently undertaken to reduce functional mitral regurgitation (FMR) in patients with chronic heart failure in the hope to improve prognosis. We aimed to assess the prognostic ...
Circulatory failure, especially with low systemic vascular resistance (SVR), as observed in septic shock, thyrotoxicosis, and anemia, is a particular pattern that should suggest thiamine (vitamin B1) ...
Undernutrition is common among acute heart failure patients and its prognosis impact has been established. The prognosis role of undernutrition among chronic heart failure patients is not known. Objet...
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...
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...
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.
Disease of CARDIAC MUSCLE resulting from chronic excessive alcohol consumption. Myocardial damage can be caused by: (1) a toxic effect of alcohol; (2) malnutrition in alcoholics such as THIAMINE DEFICIENCY; or (3) toxic effect of additives in alcoholic beverages such as COBALT. This disease is usually manifested by DYSPNEA and palpitations with CARDIOMEGALY and congestive heart failure (HEART FAILURE).
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.
A severe irreversible decline in the ability of kidneys to remove wastes, concentrate URINE, and maintain ELECTROLYTE BALANCE; BLOOD PRESSURE; and CALCIUM metabolism. Renal failure, either acute (KIDNEY FAILURE, ACUTE) or chronic (KIDNEY FAILURE, CHRONIC), requires HEMODIALYSIS.
Heart failure caused by abnormal myocardial contraction during SYSTOLE leading to defective cardiac emptying.
Cardiology is a specialty of internal medicine. Cardiac electrophysiology : Study of the electrical properties and conduction diseases of the heart. Echocardiography : The use of ultrasound to study the mechanical function/physics of the h...
Of all the types of Dementia, Alzheimer's disease is the most common, affecting around 465,000 people in the UK. Neurons in the brain die, becuase 'plaques' and 'tangles' (mis-folded proteins) form in the brain. People with Al...
