Effect of bucindolol on heart failure outcomes and heart rate response in patients with reduced ejection fraction heart failure and atrial fibrillation
There is little evidence of beta‐blocker treatment benefit in patients with heart failure and reduced left ventricular ejection fraction (HFREF) and atrial fibrillation (AF). We investigated the… Expand
Characteristics and In-Hospital Outcomes of Peripartum Cardiomyopathy Diagnosed During Delivery in the United States From the Nationwide Inpatient Sample (NIS) Database.
BACKGROUND Peripartum cardiomyopathy (PPCM) is associated with advanced maternal age, African-American race, hypertensive disorders of pregnancy, and multiple-gestation pregnancies. Less is known… Expand

Renal failure and rhabdomyolysis associated with sitagliptin and simvastatin use
Background Sitagliptin is a new oral glucose‐lowering medication that acts via the incretin hormone system. The most common side‐effects are headache and pharyngitis, and few serious adverse events… Expand
Characteristics and outcomes among heart failure patients with anemia and renal insufficiency with and without blood transfusions (public discharge data from California 2000-2006).
Renal insufficiency and anemia are increasingly recognized as predictors of adverse events in heart failure. The impact of blood transfusion on mortality in patients with heart failure has not been… Expand
