How to diagnose diastolic heart failure: a consensus statement on the diagnosis of heart failure with normal left ventricular ejection fraction by the Heart Failure and Echocardiography Associations
TLDR
The updated strategies for the diagnosis and exclusion of HFNEF are useful not only for individual patient management but also for patient recruitment in future clinical trials exploring therapies forHFNEF. Expand
EuroHeart Failure Survey II (EHFS II): a survey on hospitalized acute heart failure patients: description of population.
TLDR
Decompensated HF is the most common clinical presentation of acute heart failure patients, and the use of evidence-based HF medication was well adopted to clinical practice. Expand
Personality as independent predictor of long-term mortality in patients with coronary heart disease
TLDR
It is found that type-D personality was a significant predictor of long-term mortality in patients with established CHD, independently of biomedical risk factors. Expand
New concepts in diastolic dysfunction and diastolic heart failure: Part I: diagnosis, prognosis, and measurements of diastolic function.
TLDR
A perspective on the criteria used to diagnose diastolic heart failure, the effects of diastolics heart failure on prognosis, and measurements used to assess diastsolic function are focused on. Expand
Cardiac endothelial-myocardial signaling: its role in cardiac growth, contractile performance, and rhythmicity.
TLDR
In relation specifically to the endocardial endothelium, an active transendothelial physicochemical gradient for various ions, or blood-heart barrier, has been demonstrated, and linkage of this blood- heart barrier to the various other endothelia-mediated signaling pathways or to the putative vascular endothelialium-derived hyperpolarizing factors remains to be determined. Expand
Personality, disease severity, and the risk of long-term cardiac events in patients with a decreased ejection fraction after myocardial infarction.
TLDR
Emotional distress in patients with myocardial infarction with a decreased left ventricular ejection fraction is unrelated to disease severity but reflects individual differences in personality; assessment of LVEF and personality may identify patients at risk. Expand
Inadequate response to treatment in coronary heart disease : adverse effects of type D personality and younger age on 5-year prognosis and quality of life.
TLDR
Reduced LVEF, type D personality, and younger age increase the risk of cardiac events; convergence of these factors predicts nonresponse to treatment. Expand
New concepts in diastolic dysfunction and diastolic heart failure: Part II: causal mechanisms and treatment.
TLDR
Experimental studies that have provided insight into the mechanisms that cause diastolic heart failure will be described and the ability to efficiently target these mechanisms to correct these abnormalities in diastolics function will be targeted. Expand
Characteristics, outcomes, and predictors of mortality at 3 months and 1 year in patients hospitalized for acute heart failure
TLDR
This work evaluated 3‐ and 12‐month mortality in different clinical classes of AHF patients from 30 European countries who were included in the EuroHeart Failure Survey (EHFS) II. Expand
Triple control of relaxation: implications in cardiac disease.
TLDR
This work has shown that despite the recent progress in understanding of relaxation of the heart, the underlying mechanisms are still not fully understood and these mechanisms can now be discerned. Expand
