NICE proposes an update of published guidance if the evidence base or clinical environment has changed to an extent that is likely to have a material effect on the recommendations in the existingExpand
Executive summary of the guidelines on the diagnosis and treatment of acute heart failure: the Task Force on Acute Heart Failure of the European Society of Cardiology.
It is of great importance that guidelines and recommendations are presented in formats that are easily interpreted and their implementation programmes must also be well conducted. Expand
Adaptive Servo-Ventilation for Central Sleep Apnea in Systolic Heart Failure.
Adaptive servo-ventilation had no significant effect on the primary end point in patients who had heart failure with reduced ejection fraction and predominantly central sleep apnea, but all-cause and cardiovascular mortality were both increased with this therapy. Expand
ACC/AHA/ESC guidelines for the management of patients with supraventricular arrhythmias--executive summary. a report of the American college of cardiology/American heart association task force on
The ACC/AHA/ESC guidelines for the management of patients with supraventricular arrhythmias—executive summary: a report of the American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association Task Force on Practice Guidelines, and the European Society of Cardiologist Committee for Practice Guidelines (Writing Committee to Develop Guidelines for the Management of Patients With Supraventricular Arrhythmias). Expand
Guidelines on diagnosis and treatment of pulmonary arterial hypertension. The Task Force on Diagnosis and Treatment of Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension of the European Society of Cardiology.
Recent surveys of Guidelines and Expert Consensus Documents published in peer-reviewed journals between 1985 and 1998 have shown that methodological standards were not complied with in the vast majority of cases. Expand
Association of fibrosis with mortality and sudden cardiac death in patients with nonischemic dilated cardiomyopathy.
IMPORTANCE Risk stratification of patients with nonischemic dilated cardiomyopathy is primarily based on left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF). Superior prognostic factors may improve patientExpand
Incidence and aetiology of heart failure; a population-based study.
Within the general population, new cases of heart failure largely occur in the elderly, and the incidence is higher in men than women, and to be relevant to clinical practice, future clinical trials in heart failure should not exclude the elderly. Expand
Value of natriuretic peptides in assessment of patients with possible new heart failure in primary care
In patients with symptoms suspected by a general practitioner to be due to heart failure, plasma BNP concentration seems to be a useful indicator of which patients are likely to have heart failure and require further clinical assessment. Expand
Prognostic significance of myocardial fibrosis in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
In patients with HCM, myocardial fibrosis as measured by late gadolinium enhancement cardiovascular magnetic resonance is an independent predictor of adverse outcome. Expand
