Abstract Background Relief of congestion is the primary goal of initial therapy for acute decompensated heart failure (ADHF). Early measurement of urine sodium concentration (UNa) may be useful to identify patients with diminished response to diuretics. The aim of this study was to determine if the first spot UNa after diuretic initiation could select patients likely to require more intensive therapy during hospitalization. Methods At the time of admission, 103 patients with ADHF were identified...

Aims: Cardiac allograft vasculopathy (CAV) is a leading cause of death in orthotopic heart transplant (OHT) survivors. Effective non-invasive screening methods are needed. Our aim was to investigate the added diagnostic and prognostic value of myocardial blood flow (MBF) to standard myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) with positron emission tomography (PET) for CAV detection. Methods and results: We studied 94 OHT recipients (prognostic cohort), including 66 who underwent invasive coronary angiog...

Abstract Aims To explore the association of changes in weight and fluid during treatment for acute heart failure (AHF) with clinical endpoints. Methods and Results Weight and net fluid changes recorded at 72–96 hours in 708 AHF patients enrolled in Diuretic Optimization Strategy Evaluation in Acute Decompensated Heart Failure, Cardiorenal Rescue Study in Acute Decompensated Heart Failure, and Renal Optimization Strategies Evaluation in Acute Heart Failure studies were compared with freedom from ...

Abstract Objective The epidemiology of heart failure (HF) is changing. This study aimed to describe questions that arise during the routine care of HF patients that are unanswered by the current literature and describe how the type and focus of these questions has changed over time. Methods Investigators from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute–sponsored Heart Failure Apprentice Network collected and categorized questions from 5 academic hospitals over 12 months. A total of 174 unanswe...

Abstract Background Despite increased use of guideline-directed medical therapy (GDMT), some patients with heart failure and reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF) remain at high risk for hospitalization and mortality. Remote monitoring of pulmonary artery (PA) pressures provides clinicians with actionable information to help further optimize medications and improve outcomes. Objectives CHAMPION (CardioMEMS Heart Sensor Allows Monitoring of Pressure to Improve Outcomes in NYHA Class III Heart Failure...

Background The Interagency Registry for Mechanically Assisted Circulatory Support (INTERMACS) database now includes >20,000 patients from >180 hospitals. Methods The eighth annual report of INTERMACS updates the first decade of patient enrollment. Results In the current era, >95% of implants are continuous flow devices. Overall survival continues to remain >80% at 1 year and 70% at 2 years. Review of major adverse events shows minimal advantage for patients with ambulatory heart failure pre-impl...

Abstract Objectives This study assessed patient and physician perceptions of heart failure (HF) disease severity and treatment options. Background The prognosis for ambulatory patients with advanced HF on medical therapy is uncertain, yet has important implications for decision making regarding transplantation and left ventricular assist device (LVAD) placement. Methods Ambulatory patients with advanced HF (New York Heart Association functional class III to IV, Interagency Registry for Mechanica...
