Effect of Estimated Plasma Volume Reduction on Renal Function for Acute Heart Failure Differs Between Patients With Preserved and Reduced Ejection Fraction
TLDR
The effect of Estimated PVR differs by HF type, and the estimated PVR during hospitalization is a predictor of worsening renal function in patients with HFpEF but not in heart failure with reduced ejection fraction. Expand
Current use of guideline-based medical therapy in elderly patients admitted with acute heart failure with reduced ejection fraction and its impact on event-free survival.
TLDR
GBMT implementation in elderly patients with acute HF with reduced ejection fraction was found to be suboptimal, however, the underuse of GBMT did not appear to be responsible for poorer outcomes in elderly HFrEF patients. Expand
Estimated Prevalence of Heterozygous Familial Hypercholesterolemia in Patients With Acute Coronary Syndrome.
TLDR
It is demonstrated the usefulness of measuring Achilles tendon thickness by radiography and the high prevalence of heterozygous FH in patients with ACS in Japan, especially in younger patients who were less than 60 years old. Expand
Serum alkaline phosphatase as a predictor of worsening renal function in patients with acute decompensated heart failure.
TLDR
Serum ALP is an independent predictor of WRF in the clinical course of ADHF and is associated with CKD and diabetes in patients with ADHF. Expand
Time-to-Furosemide Treatment and Mortality in Patients Hospitalized With Acute Heart Failure.
TLDR
In this prospective multicenter, observational cohort study of patients presenting at the ED for AHF, early treatment with intravenous loop diuretics was associated with lower in-hospital mortality. Expand
Relationship between serum uric acid levels and hypertension among Japanese individuals not treated for hyperuricemia and hypertension
TLDR
Elevated serum uric acid levels may be as important as obesity, dyslipidemia, diabetes, smoking and reduced kidney function for the development of hypertension and should be considered in hypertension prevention programs. Expand
Performance of the MAGGIC heart failure risk score and its modification with the addition of discharge natriuretic peptides
TLDR
The model performance of the Meta‐analysis Global Group in Chronic Heart Failure (MAGGIC) score in a Japanese acute heart failure registry is validated and the incremental prognostic value of discharge B‐type natriuretic peptide (BNP) level is explored. Expand
Long-Term Prognostic Significance of Plasma B-Type Natriuretic Peptide Level in Patients With Acute Heart Failure With Reduced, Mid-Range, and Preserved Ejection Fractions.
TLDR
Discharge BNP is a more reliable marker than other BNP parameters on long-term outcome prediction in patients with AHF, but its prognostic impact may be weakened in HFmrEF and HFpEF compared with HFrEF. Expand
Management and 1‐Year Outcomes of Patients With Newly Diagnosed Atrial Fibrillation and Chronic Kidney Disease: Results From the Prospective GARFIELD‐AF Registry
TLDR
The effect of moderate‐to‐severe CKD on mortality was significantly greater in patients from Asia than the rest of the world, and the quality of anticoagulant control with vitamin K antagonists did not differ with CKD stage. Expand
The Total Urine Protein-to-Creatinine Ratio Can Predict the Presence of Microalbuminuria
TLDR
The results suggest that the TPCR with an appropriate cut-off value could be used to screen for the presence of microalbuminuria in patients with CVD risk factors. Expand
