Abstract Background Left ventricular assist device (LVAD) therapy has revolutionized the treatment options for advanced heart failure patients. Patient selection is essential in obtaining successful results. However, little data exists on the outcomes of patients evaluated for LVAD therapy but subsequently rejected or deferred. Methods This is a retrospective review of all patients referred for LVAD therapy at our institution between January 2009 to December 2016. Baseline demographics and INTER...

Abstract Background – The beneficial effects of a cardiac resynchronization defibrillator (CRT-D) in patients with heart failure, low LVEF, and wide QRS have clearly been established. Nevertheless, mortality remains high in some patients. The aim of this study was to develop and validate a risk score to identify patients at high risk for early mortality who are implanted with a CRT-D. Methods and Results – For predictive modelling, 1282 consecutive patients from 5 centers (74% male; median age 6...

ABSTRACT Aim Hemocompatibility-related adverse events (HRAE) are a major cause of readmissions in patients with left ventricular assist device (LVAD). The impact of aortic insufficiency (AI) on HRAE remains uncertain. We aimed to investigate the impact of AI on HRAE. Methods and Results Patients who underwent LVAD implantation between August 2014 and July 2017 and had echocardiograms 3 months post-LVAD were enrolled. AI severity was assessed by measuring the systolic/diastolic ratio of flow and ...

Abstract Background Despite a global epidemic of methamphetamine abuse, methamphetamine-associated heart failure (MethHF) remains poorly understood. We sought to evaluate characteristics and outcomes for patients with MethHF. Methods We reviewed the electronic health records of the University of California, San Diego from 2005-16. We compared characteristics and outcomes between 896 patients with MethHF and 20,576 patients with heart failure (HF) identified using diagnosis codes, urine toxicolog...

Abstract Introduction Limited data is available on the effect of severe chronic kidney disease (CKD) on the response to cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) as these patients are often excluded from trials. We therefore aimed to assess the effect of CRT on renal function, reverse remodeling and outcome across all stages of CKD in a large patient population of CRT recipients. Methods 798 consecutive heart failure (HF) patients undergoing CRT implantation between October 2008 and September 2016...

Abstract Background: Wolff-Parkinson-White (WPW) has been associated with left ventricular noncompaction (LVNC) in children. Little is known about the prevalence of this association, clinical outcomes, and treatment options. Methods: Retrospective review of subjects with LVNC. LVNC was defined by established criteria; those with congenital heart disease were excluded. Electrocardiograms were reviewed for presence of preexcitation. Outcomes were compared between those with isolated LVNC and those...

Abstract Background Patients with heart failure (HF) with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) and obesity display a number of pathophysiologic features that may render them more or less vulnerable to negative effects of decongestion on renal function, including greater right ventricular remodeling, plasma volume expansion, and pericardial restraint. We aimed to contrast the renal response to decongestion in obese compared to non-obese HFpEF Methods and Results NIH heart failure network studies t...
