BACKGROUND: Among patients with advanced heart failure (HF), treatment with a left ventricular assist device (LVAD) improves health-related quality of life (HRQOL). We investigated the association between psychosocial risk factors, HRQOL, and outcomes after LVAD implantation. METHODS: A retrospective cohort (n=9832) of adults aged ≥ 19 years who received durable LVAD between 2008 - 2017 was identified using the Interagency Registry for Mechanically Assisted Circulatory Support (INTERMACS)...

BACKGROUND: Palliative care (PC) is an essential component of high-quality cardiovascular disease (CVD) care. However, little is known about the current state of PC education in CVD training including attitudes towards integration in training and implementation among program leadership. METHODS: We developed a nationwide, cross-sectional survey querying educational approaches, perspectives, and barriers to PC education in general CVD fellowship training. The survey was distributed to 392 members of the American College of Cardiology Program Director (PD) listserv representing 290 general CVD fellowships between 1/2023 and 4/2023...

BACKGROUND: Sarcopenia is underappreciated in advanced heart failure and is not routinely assessed. In patients receiving a left ventricular assist device (LVAD), preoperative sarcopenia, defined using CT-derived pectoralis muscle area index (muscle area indexed to body surface area), is an independent predictor of post-operative mortality. The association between preoperative sarcopenia and outcomes after heart transplant (HT) is unknown. OBJECTIVES: The primary aim was to determine if preoperative sarcopenia, diagnosed using pectoralis muscle area index, is an independent predictor of days alive and out of the hospital (DAOH) post-transplant...

BACKGROUND: Prognosis of individuals with and without an established heart failure (HF) diagnosis and similarly elevated N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) levels is not well known. METHODS: CANVAS (Canagliflozin Cardiovascular Assessment Study) trial participants were stratified according to baseline NT-proBNP quartiles and history of HF at baseline. Adjusted event rates per 1000 patient-years follow-up for hospitalizations for HF (HHF), cardiovascular mortality, and kidney events were assessed, and hazard ratios (HR) were calculated using Cox proportional hazard models...

In this issue of the Journal of Cardiac Failure, Dr. Sooyoon Shin and colleagues look at whether information from wearable devices, or activity trackers, could improve how a medical team monitors activity limitations for people who are at risk of developing heart failure symptoms.1 .

BACKGROUND: We investigated variables impacting waitlist time and negative waitlist outcomes in adult congenital heart disease (ACHD) orthotopic heart transplant (OHT) candidates following the 2018 allocation change. METHODS: Adult OHT candidates listed between 10/18/2018-12/31/2022 in the United Network for Organ Sharing database were categorized as ACHD vs. non-ACHD. Waitlist time and time to upgrade for those upgraded into status 1-3 were compared using rank-sum tests...

BACKGROUND: Randomized controlled trials typically require study-specific visits, which can burden participants and sites. Remote follow-up, such as centralized call centers for participant-reported or site-reported, holds promise for reducing costs and enhancing the pragmatism of trials. In this secondary analysis of the CONNECT-HF trial, we aimed to evaluate the completeness and validity of the remote follow-up process. METHODS AND RESULTS: CONNECT-HF evaluated the effect of a post-discharge quality improvement intervention for heart failure compared to usual care for up to 1 year...

BACKGROUND: Data collected via wearables may complement in-clinic assessments to monitor subclinical heart failure (HF). OBJECTIVES: Evaluate the association of sensor-based digital walking measures with HF stage and characterize their correlation with in-clinic measures of physical performance, cardiac function and participant reported outcomes (PROs) in individuals with early HF. METHODS: The analyzable cohort included participants from the Project Baseline Health Study (PBHS) with HF stage 0, A, or B, or adaptive remodeling phenotype (without risk factors but with mild echocardiographic change, termed RF-/ECHO+) (based on available first-visit in-clinic test and echocardiogram results) and with sufficient sensor data...

Heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) is highly prevalent and associated with worse cardiovascular outcomes. The pathophysiology of HFpEF mostly relies on the development of elevated left ventricle filling pressure, diastolic dysfunction, atrial dilatation and impairment. This dynamic process may eventually lead to the development of functional mitral regurgitation, characterized by mitral annular dilatation and consequent leaflet remodelling, in the context of preserved left ventricular ejection fraction...

BACKGROUND: Patients with left ventricular assist devices (LVAD) require interruption of warfarin for invasive procedures yet parenteral bridging is associated with many complications. Four-factor prothrombin complex concentrate (4F-PCC) can temporarily restore hemostasis in patients anticoagulated with warfarin. OBJECTIVES: This pilot study evaluated the strategy of using variable dose 4F-PCC to immediately and temporarily reverse warfarin before invasive procedures without holding warfarin in patients with LVAD...

Incidence of acute respiratory insufficiency has continued to increase amongst patients admitted to modern day cardiovascular intensive care units. Positive pressure ventilation (PPV) remains the mainstay of treatment for these patients. Alterations in intrathoracic pressure during PPV has distinct effects on both the right and left ventricle affecting cardiovascular performance. Lung protective ventilation (LPV) minimizes the risk of further lung injury through ventilator induced lung injury and hence an understanding of LPV and its cardiopulmonary interactions is beneficial for cardiologists...
