BACKGROUND An aging population and better management of various heart diseases explain the exponential growth in incidence and prevalence of chronic heart failure, with poor prognosis and heavy health costs. Medical management is codified in international guidelines. The management of heart failure in over-80 year-old patients follows these guidelines, but(More)
The aim of the study was to assess the impact of clinical characteristics and management on the mid- to long-term follow-up prognosis of unselected over-80-year-old patients hospitalized for a first heart failure (HF) episode in a real-life setting. Despite the increasing proportion of HF patients over 80 years of age, the latter remain a poorly studied(More)
There is evidence that pulmonary arterial hypertension plays a major role in the occurrence of high altitude pulmonary edema (HAPE). We tested the hypothesis that the pulmonary arterial systolic pressure response to a challenge associated with hypoxia and mild exercise may be considered a predictive factor of HAPE. Pulmonary arterial systolic pressure was(More)
Pheochromocytoma and paraganglioma (PPG) are rare and late-diagnosed catecholamine secreting tumors, which may be associated with unrecognized and/or severe cardiomyopathies. We performed a computer-assisted systematic search of the electronic Medline databases using the MESH terms "myocarditis," "myocardial infarction," "Takotsubo," "stress(More)
