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. ...
Body surface area as a prognostic marker in chronic heart failure patients: results from the Heart Failure Registry of the Heart Failure Association of the European Society of Cardiology
[Abstract] AIMS: The 'obesity paradox' is consistently observed in patients with heart failure (HF). We investigated the relationship of body surface area (BSA) to mortality and hospitalizations in patients with chronic ...
Epidemiology and one‐year outcomes in patients with chronic heart failure and preserved, mid‐range and reduced ejection fraction: an analysis of the ESC Heart Failure Long‐Term Registry
[Abstract] AIMS: The objectives of the present study were to describe epidemiology and outcomes in ambulatory heart failure (HF) patients stratified by left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) and to identify predictors ...
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 ...
Anemia at hospital admission and its relation to outcomes in patients with heart failure (from the polish cohort of 2 European Society of Cardiology Heart Failure Registries)
[Abstract] Anemia is a commonly observed co-morbidity in heart failure (HF). The aim of the study was to assess prevalence, risk factors for, and effect of anemia on short- and long-term outcomes in HF. The study included ...
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 ...
