Robust epidemiological data on the incidence of myocardial infarction (MI) are hard to find, but synthesis of data from a number of sources indicates that the average hospital in the UK should admit about two patients with a first MI and one recurrent MI per 1000 population per year. Possibly the most relevant data on the incidence, prevalence, and(More)
AIMS Myocardial infarction (MI) is a common cause of heart failure (HF), which may develop early and persist or resolve, or develop late. The cumulative incidence, persistence, and resolution of HF after MI are poorly described. The aim of this study is to describe the natural history and prognosis of HF after an MI. METHODS AND RESULTS Patients with a(More)
OBJECTIVE To identify factors associated with short term mortality in hospitalised patients with heart failure. BACKGROUND Hospitalisation is frequent in patients with heart failure and is associated with a high mortality. METHODS The Euro Heart Failure survey collected data from patients with suspected heart failure. We searched this data for(More)
BACKGROUND Most patients suspected of having heart failure (HF) will get a 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) but its utility for excluding HF or assisting in its management has rarely been investigated. METHODS The EuroHeart Failure survey identified 11,327 patients hospitalised with a suspected diagnosis of HF from 115 hospitals in 24 countries. ECGs were(More)
For patients with moderate or severe heart failure who have evidence of cardiac dyssynchrony there is overwhelming evidence that cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) improves symptoms substantially, reduces morbidity, and prolongs life. The CARE-HF programme demonstrated that CRT reduced all-cause mortality by 40% and cardiovascular mortality by about(More)
Two hundred and ten cases of diphtheria of both sexes and all ages with seasonal incidence and area prevalences were studied. Therapeutic trial of corticosteroid hormone was done in all cases of diphtheria studied. It was found that cortisone along with conventional drug therapy, the death rate came down to 68%. Age incidence of our cases had similar(More)
Heart failure is an increasingly common and debilitating condition for which pharmacological therapy has, so far, provided only partial relief. Despite medical therapy the overall prognosis remains poor with high rates of sudden death and death from progressive heart failure. Device based therapies offer considerable promise both for the relief of symptoms(More)
