Effects of Intracoronary CD34+ Stem Cell Transplantation in Nonischemic Dilated Cardiomyopathy Patients: 5-Year Follow-Up
TLDR
Intracoronary stem cell transplantation may be associated with improved ventricular function, exercise tolerance, and long-term survival in patients with dilated cardiomyopathy.
Stem cell therapy for ischemic heart failure
TLDR
Preclinical animal studies and promising early results of clinical trials now under way suggest that stem-cell therapy may soon become an important new tool in heart failure management.
Stem cell therapy in patients with heart failure.
TLDR
Stem cell therapies are being investigated as a safe treatment strategy for decreasing cardiac remodelling on top of conventional medical and device treatment in patients with end-stage heart failure.
The effects of levosimendan on renal function early after heart transplantation: results from a pilot randomized trial
We evaluated the effects of a levosimendan (LS)‐based strategy compared with standard inotropic therapy on renal function in heart transplantation.
Comparison of Transendocardial and Intracoronary CD34+ Cell Transplantation in Patients With Nonischemic Dilated Cardiomyopathy
TLDR
In patients with dilated cardiomyopathy, transendocardial CD34+ cell transplantation is associated with higher myocardial retention rates and greater improvement in ventricular function, N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide, and exercise capacity compared with intracoronary route.
Effects of Transendocardial CD34+ Cell Transplantation in Patients With Ischemic Cardiomyopathy
TLDR
Transendocardial CD34+ cell transplantation may be associated with improved left ventricular function, decreased N-terminal pro B-type natriuretic peptide levels, and better exercise capacity in patients with ischemic cardiomyopathy.
Machine Learning and End-to-End Deep Learning for the Detection of Chronic Heart Failure From Heart Sounds
TLDR
The proposed method shows promising results both for the distinction of recordings between healthy subjects and patients and for the detection of different CHF phases, which may lead to the easier identification of new CHF patients and the development of home-based CHF monitors for avoiding hospitalizations.
Coexistence and outcome of coronary artery disease in Takotsubo syndrome.
TLDR
Coronary artery disease frequently coexists in TTS patients, presents with the whole spectrum of coronary pathology including acute coronary occlusion, and is associated with adverse outcome.
Increased red cell distribution width is associated with poor stem cell mobilization in patients with advanced chronic heart failure
TLDR
Increased RDW was the only independent predictor of poor CD34+ stem cell mobilize on multivariable analysis and may serve as a biomarker of poor stem cell mobilization in CHF patients.
