Abstract Background Acute heart failure (HF) patients with renal insufficiency and risk factors for diuretic resistance may be most likely to derive incremental improvement in congestion with the addition of spironolactone. Methods The A ldosterone T argeted Neuro h ormonal Combin e d with Na triuresis Therapy in H eart F ailure (ATHENA-HF) trial randomized 360 acute HF patients with reduced or preserved ejection fraction to spironolactone 100 mg daily or usual care for 96 hours. The current ana...

Abstract The coexistence of chronic kidney disease (CKD) and severe aortic stenosis (AS) is common, and the prevalence of both is rising. The 2 conditions are inherently linked in that significant CKD may accelerate the development of AS and severe AS may result in deteriorating kidney function. The volume of and indications for transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) procedures are ever-increasing, and there are many challenges that need to be considered in patients with concomitant seve...

Abstract Cardiorenal syndromes (CRS) describe concomitant bidirectional dysfunction of the heart and kidneys in which 1 organ initiates, perpetuates, and/or accelerates decline of the other. CRS are common in heart failure and universally portend worsened prognosis. Despite this heavy disease burden, the appropriate diagnosis and classification of CRS remains problematic. In addition to the hemodynamic drivers of decreased renal perfusion and increased renal vein pressure, induction of the renin...

Structured Abstract Background – Machine Learning (ML) encompasses a wide variety of methods by which artificial intelligence learn to perform tasks when exposed to data. Although detection of myocardial infarction has been facilitated with introduction of troponins, the diagnosis of acute coronary syndromes (ACS) without myocardial damage (without elevation of serum troponin) remains subjective and its accuracy remains highly dependent on the clinical skills of the health care professionals. Ap...

Abstract Background Chronic kidney disease (CKD) has a negative impact on outcomes after transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). Data on outcomes in renal transplant recipients (RTRs) undergoing TAVR are scarce. We compared the outcomes in RTRs undergoing TAVR with matched patients who have native kidneys and similar kidney function. Methods This retrospective cohort study used data from 16 TAVR centres (13,941 patients). The study cohort included 216 patients (72 RTRs and 144 matched con...

Abstract and Keywords Background The clinical features, angiographic findings, and outcomes have not been compared between pediatric and adult Takayasu arteritis (TA) patients with coronary involvement. Methods Of 1056 consecutive TA patients hospitalized and followed from 1990 to 2018 in our hospital, 38 patients including 9 children and 29 adults (mean age at diagnosis of 14.3 ± 3.3 and 38.6 ± 12.0 years old, respectively) were diagnosed with coronary artery involvement by imaging. Clinical ma...
