BACKGROUND: Heart failure (HF) is a global growing health threat. This case-control clinical trial aimed to detect the predictive value and difference in aldosterone level between right side heart failure, heart failure with decreased ejection fraction (HFrEF) and heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) and compare the efficacy and safety of adding mineralocorticoid receptor antagonist (MRA) for treatment. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We recruited 151 participants, 135 HF patients divided equally into 45 patients in each group:(1) right side HF (2) HFrEF and (3) HFpEF and 16 healthy controls...

Coronary angiography (CA) is an increasing diagnostic procedure in Belgium. The aim of this analysis was to look at the financial aspects of CA in a large tertiary Belgium hospital to establish if current reimbursement is appropriate. For the analysis of costs we considered the use of the catheterisation laboratory, personnel costs and material costs during multiple weekly periods in the spring of 2023. We calculated that one cathlab needs to perform 8.21 CA's to equal incomes with costs. To allow for a small positive income (200€) for the hospital/cardiologist 9 procedures per cathlab day are required...

Cardiac MRI has made significant advances in the past decade, becoming an important technique for the evaluation of various cardiac pathologies. The aim of this document is to review the current indications for performing cardiac MRI based on the current ESC guidelines for STEMI, NSTEMI, chronic coronary artery disease, heart failure, arrhythmias, sudden cardiac death, valvular heart disease, pericardial disease and congenital heart disease. The review discusses the diagnostic and prognostic value of cMR for numerous cardiac diseases, and its important value in assessing structural heart disease and predicting arrhythmia risk...

BACKGROUND: Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) has been regarded as a predictor of poor outcomes in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI). AMI complicated by diabetes mellitus (DM) tends to have a high prevalence and a worse prognosis. We aim to evaluate the association between thyroid dysfunction and in-hospital outcomes and short- and medium-term mortality in diabetic patients with AMI. METHODS: From January 2017 to November 2020, a total of 432 patients with AMI were included in this study, including 209 DM patients and 223 non-DM patients...

REVIEW

Conventional pacing systems consist of a pacemaker and one or more leads threaded from the device pocket through veins into the heart conducting the pacing therapy to the desired pacing site. Although these devices are effective, approximately one in eight patients treated with these traditional pacing systems experiences a complication attributed to the pacemaker pocket or leads. With the technological advances in electronics, leadless pacemakers that small enough to implant within the heart were introduced...

BACKGROUND: Cardiac resynchronisation therapy (CRT) can be necessary in patients with chronic heart failure, who have already been provided with transvenous cardiac implantable electrical devices. Upgrade procedures revealed controversial results, while long-term outcomes regarding underlying Ischaemic- (ICM) or Non-Ischaemic heart disease (NICM) have yet to be described. METHODS: The Mannheim Cardiac Resynchronisation Therapy Registry (MARACANA) was designed as a retrospective observational single-centre registry, including all CRT implantations from 2013-2021 ( n  = 459)...

BACKGROUND: Which patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) should have oral nitrates on their discharge medication list after coronary angiography (CAG)? To assess the relationship between oral nitrates included in the discharge medication list and major adverse cardiovascular events (MACEs) among CAD patients, we designed this retrospective cohort study. METHODS: A total of 2979 CAD patients hospitalised in the Department of Cardiology, Affiliated Hospital of Jining Medical University from May 2013 to October 2015 were enrolled, grouped according to whether oral nitrates were included at discharge after CAG, and followed up for MACEs for a mean of 4...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the efficacy and safety of ultrafiltration (UF) combined with haemodialysis (HD) sequential therapy in patients with intradialytic hypotension (IDH) and water retention. METHODS: A total of 53 uraemia patients with IDH who could not tolerate dehydration and significant water and sodium retention (net weight gain of more than 4 kg) were randomly divided into control group (28 cases) and treatment group (25 cases). After adjusting dialysis parameters (blood pump speed and excessive filtration), HD was tried again in the control group, and UF combined with HD was given sequential treatment in the treatment group...

BACKGROUND: Recently, an important health issue in children is obesity, leading to hypertension. The aim of this study was to determine association of blood pressure with anthropometric variables in adolescents. METHODS: In this study, 1992 adolescents aged 11-18 years old between 2000 and 2007 were included. Cut point of anthropometric indices of waist circumference (WC), waist-to-stature ratio (WSR) and body mass index (BMI) was identified using Youden's index...
