Objectives: We sought to estimate the mortality and morbidity in diabetic acute heart failure (AHF) patients stratified by left ventricular ejection fraction. Methods: We analyzed the data of patients with AHF from seven Middle Eastern countries (Bahrain, Oman, Yemen, Kuwait, UAE, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia) from February to November 2012, who were enrolled in a multinational registry of patients with heart failure (HF). Results: A total of 2258 AHF patients had diabetes mellitus. The mean age was ...

AIMS: The aim of this study is to determine the impact of diabetes mellitus on all-cause mortality and rehospitalization rates at 3 months and at 1 year in patients admitted with acute heart failure (AHF) stratified by left ventricular ejection fraction (EF). METHODS AND RESULTS: We analysed consecutive patients admitted to 47 hospitals in seven Middle Eastern countries (Saudi Arabia, Oman, Yemen, Kuwait, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, and Bahrain) with AHF from February to November 2012 with AHF ...

OBJECTIVE: Despite the expanding burden of heart failure (HF) worldwide, data on precipitating factors (PFs) in heart failure from developing countries; particularly from the Middle East is very limited. We examined PFs in patients hospitalized with acute HF in a prospective multicenter HF registry from seven Middle-Eastern countries. METHODS: Data were derived from Gulf CARE (Gulf aCute heArt failuRe rEgistry), a prospective multinational multicenter study of consecutive patients hospitalized w...

BACKGROUND: The prognostic impact of beta-blockers (BB) in coronary artery disease (CAD) is controversial, especially in the post-reperfusion era. OBJECTIVE: To assess whether patients with CAD and heart failure (HF) but without left ventricular dysfunction might benefit from BB use. METHODS: We studied in-hospital cardiovascular events in patients hospitalized for acute HF, with a previous history of CAD and a left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) >/=40%, in relation to BB on admission; and...

AIM: To determine the prevalence, genetic characteristics, current management and outcomes of familial hypercholesterolaemia (FH) in the Gulf region. METHOD: Adult (18-70 years) FH patients were recruited from 9 hospitals and centres across 5 Arabian Gulf countries. The study was divided into 4 phases and included patients from 3 different categories. In Phase 1, suspected FH patients (category 1) were collected according to the lipid profile and clinical data obtained through hospital record sy...

Objective We aimed to determine the mortality and re-hospitalization rates in diabetic heart failure patients with HFrEF, HFmrEF and HFpEF. Methods We analysed 5005 patients with acute heart failure (AHF) who were enrolled in Gulf CARE, a multinational registry of patients with HF. We compared the the mortality and re-hospitalization rates in diabetic heart failure patients with HFrEF, HFmrEF and HFpEF. Results A total of 2258 (45%) AHF patients had type II diabetes. Adjusted 3 months and 12 mon...

Objective The purpose of this study was to evaluate the impact of R-heart failure (R-hf) risk score on all-cause mortality in acute heart failure (AHF) patients in the Middle East. Methods Data was analyzed from 776 consecutive patients. R-hf risk score were derived by multiplying (eGFR (mL/min), left ventricular ejection fraction (%) and hemoglobin levels (g/dL)) and then by dividing by NT proBNP (pg/ml). R-hf scores of Results The overall mean age of the cohort was 62±14 years, 63% (n=484) wer...
