Preoperative INTERMACS profiles determine postoperative outcomes in critically ill patients undergoing emergency heart transplantation: analysis of the Spanish National Heart Transplant Registry
(American Heart Association, 2013-05-14)
[Abstract] Background. Postoperative outcomes of patients with advanced heart failure undergoing ventricular assist device implantation are strongly influenced by their preoperative Interagency Registry for Mechanically ...
Light chain and transthyretin cardiac amyloidosis: Clinical characteristics, natural history and prognostic factors
[Abstract] Introduction and objectives. Light-chain amyloidosis (AL-CA) and transthyretin amyloidosis (ATTR-CA) are the most common types of cardiac amyloidosis (CA). We sought to study the clinical characteristics and ...
Polymorphisms in genes related to the complement system and antibody-mediated cardiac allograft rejection
[Abstract] Background. Heart transplantation (HT) is a life-saving treatment for patients with end-stage heart failure. One of the main problems after HT is the humoral response termed antibody-mediated rejection (AMR). ...
Circulating miR-181a-5p as a new biomarker for acute cellular rejection in heart transplantation
[Abstract] Background: Acute cellular rejection (ACR) is a major complication in heart transplantation (HTx). Endomyocardial biopsy is the reference method for early detection of ACR, but a new non-invasive approach is ...
Indoleamine, 2-3 dioxygenase activity could be an early marker of graft rejection in heart transplantation
[Abstract] Background. The indoleamine, 2-3 dioxygenase (IDO) is an inducible intracellular enzyme with immunosuppressive effects mainly on lymphocyte populations. It has been postulated that indirect determination of IDO ...
Clinical profile and causes of death according to ejection fraction in patients with heart failure cared for in a specialized Cardiology unit
[Abstract] Background and objective. Patients with heart failure are classified into three phenotypes based on left ventricular ejection fraction. This work aimed to compare the clinical profile, treatment, prognosis, ...
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. ...
Infectious complications associated with short-term mechanical circulatory support in urgent heart transplant candidates
[Abstract] Introduction and objectives. Short-term mechanical circulatory support is frequently used as a bridge to heart transplant in Spain. The epidemiology and prognostic impact of infectious complications in these ...
Significance of potassium alterations. Beyond heart failure
Determinants of Maximal Oxygen Uptake in Patients With Heart Failure
(Wiley Online Library, 2021-03-27)
[Abstract] Aims Maximum oxygen uptake (VO₂max) is an essential parameter to assess functional capacity of patients with heart failure (HF). We aimed to identify clinical factors that determine its value, as they have not ...
