BACKGROUND Small-scale studies focused mainly on nonischemic cardiomyopathy (NICM) have shown that a subset of left ventricular assist device (LVAD) patients can achieve significant improvement of their native heart function, but the impact of ischemic cardiomyopathy (ICM) has not been specifically investigated. Many patients with acute myocardial infarction are discharged from their index hospitalization without heart failure (HF), only to return much later with overt HF syndrome, mainly… CONTINUE READING
