AGT haplotype in ITGA4 gene is related to antibody-mediated rejection in heart transplant patients
(Stanislaw Stepkowski,, 2019-07-23)
[Abstract] Introduction. One of the main problems involved in heart transplantation (HT) is antibody-mediated rejection (AMR). Many aspects of AMR are still unresolved, including its etiology, diagnosis and treatment. ...
POT1 and damage response malfunction trigger acquisition of somatic activating mutations in the VEGF pathway in cardiac angiosarcomas
(American Heart Association, 2019-09-17)
[Abstract] Background Mutations in the POT1 gene explain abnormally long telomeres and multiple tumors including cardiac angiosarcomas (CAS). However, the link between long telomeres and tumorigenesis is poorly ...
Conversion from immediate-release tacrolimus to prolonged-release tacrolimus in stable heart transplant patients: a retrospective study
[Abstract] Background Lifelong adherence with post-transplant immunosuppression is challenging, with nonadherence associated with greater acute rejection (AR) risk. Methods This retrospective study evaluated conversion ...
Popeye's sign, heart disease, and amyloidosis
Differences in clinical characteristics and 1-year outcomes of hospitalized patients with heart failure in ESC-HF Pilot and ESC-HF-LT registries
(Medycyna Praktyczna, 2019-01-16)
[Abstract] INTRODUCTION The management of heart failure (HF) has changed significantly in recent decades. OBJECTIVES We analyzed the clinical profile, 1‑year outcomes, predictors of mortality, and hospital readmissions ...
Comparative analysis of long-term outcomes of torasemide and furosemide in heart failure patients in heart failure registries of the European Society of Cardiology
[Abstract] Purpose. Current clinical recommendations do not emphasise superiority of any of diuretics, but available reports are very encouraging and suggest beneficial effects of torasemide. This study aimed to compare ...
An integrated molecular diagnostic report for heart transplant biopsies using an ensemble of diagnostic algorithms
[Abstract] BACKGROUND. We previously reported a microarray-based diagnostic system for heart transplant endomyocardial biopsies (EMBs), using either 3-archetype (3AA) or 4-archetype (4AA) unsupervised algorithms to estimate ...
A pragmatic approach to the use of inotropes for the management of acute and advanced heart failure: an expert panel consensus
[Abstract] Inotropes aim at increasing cardiac output by enhancing cardiac contractility. They constitute the third pharmacological pillar in the treatment of patients with decompensated heart failure, the other two being ...
Brachial pulse pressure in acute heart failure. Results of the Heart Failure Registry
(Willey Online Library, 2019-12-09)
[Abstract] Aims To investigate the still uncertain independent prognostic impact of pulse pressure (PP) in acute heart failure (HF), in particular across the left ventricular ejection fraction (EF) phenotypes, and the ...
Women, obesity, and the incidence of heart failure: an uncertainty that has begun to be solved
(SAGE Journals, 2019-12-04)
