OBJECTIVES: Cardiorenal syndrome (CRS) is the combination of acute heart failure syndrome (AHF) and renal dysfunction (creatinine clearance (CrCl) ≤60 mL/min). Real-life data were used to compare the management and outcome of AHF with and without renal dysfunction. DESIGN: Prospective, multicentre. SETTING: Twenty-six academic, community and regional hospitals in France. PARTICIPANTS: 507 patients with AHF were assessed in two groups according to renal function: group 1 (patients with CRS (CrCl ≤60 mL/min): n=335) and group 2 (patients with AHF with normal renal function (CrCl >60 mL/min): n=172)...

A 73-year-old male was referred to our hospital for acute congestive heart failure. His cardiac and respiratory conditions were worsening with cardiogenic shock requiring intubation. Coronary angiography revealed severe triple vessel disease, and echocardiography showed severe left ventricular dysfunction. Therefore, he underwent veno artery extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VA-ECMO) followed by percutaneous left ventricular assist device (Impella). His cardiac condition improved and VA-ECMO and Impella were removed on the 2nd day and the 4th day after surgery, respectively...

Constipation is associated with cardiovascular events. Changes to the intestinal microbiota by constipation can induce atherosclerosis, blood pressure rise, and cardiovascular events. Constipation increases with age and often coexists with cardiovascular risk factors. In addition, strain at stool causes blood pressure rise, which can trigger cardiovascular events such as congestive heart failure, arrhythmia, acute coronary disease, and aortic dissection. However, because cardiovascular medical research often focuses on more dramatic interventions, the risk from constipation can be overlooked...

BACKGROUND: Due to a massive increase in capillary permeability during the state of shock caused by burns, albumin and intravascular fluid rapidly move to the extravascular areas. Therefore, hypoalbuminemia is seen as an early and prolonged finding in major burns. Hypoalbuminemia leads to various problems. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of the preoperative albumin level on perioperative morbidity and mortality in patients with major burns. METHODS: Demographic data, preoperative albumin levels, surgical records, and clinical follow-up records of a total of 61 patients who underwent surgery for major burns in our hospital for the last 2 years were examined...

INTRODUCTION: Mouse models of chronic heart failure (HF) have been widely used in HF research. However, the current HF models most often use the C57BL/6 mouse strain and do not show the clinically relevant characteristics of pulmonary congestion. In this study, we developed a robust mouse model of HF in the BALB/c mouse strain, exhibiting pulmonary edema and pleural effusion, and we validated the model using the standard pharmacological therapies in patients with chronic HF and reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF) or acute decompensated HF...

BACKGROUND: Thirty-day readmission penalties implemented with the Hospital Readmission Reduction Program (HRRP) place a larger burden on safety-net hospitals which treat a disproportionate share of racial minorities, leading to concerns that already large racial disparities in readmissions could widen. OBJECTIVE: To examine whether there were changes in Black-White disparities in 30-day readmissions for acute myocardial infarction (AMI), congestive heart failure (CHF), or pneumonia following the passage and implementation of HRRP, and to compare disparities across safety-net and non-safety-net hospitals...

BACKGROUND: Acute heart failure (AHF) is one of the most common diagnoses for elderly patients in the emergency department (ED), with an admission rate above 80% and 1-month mortality around 10%. The European guidelines for the management of AHF are based on moderate levels of evidence, due to the lack of randomized controlled trials and the scarce evidence of any clinical added value of a specific treatment to improve outcomes. Recent reports suggest that the very early administration of full recommended therapy may decrease mortality...

Postcontrast acute kidney injury (AKI) occurs more frequently in patients with lower estimated glomerular filtration rate. We hypothesized that postcontrast AKI in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients with distinct risk factors might be associated with accelerated renal progression.We undertook this retrospective cohort study to develop and validate a risk scoring model for predicting renal progression. In a development dataset, 18,278 contrast-enhanced CT scans were performed in 9097 patients with CKD (estimated glomerular filtration rate [eGFR] < 60 mL/min/1...

BACKGROUND: Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is the common cause of mortality in developed countries. The feasibility of whole-genome gene expression analysis to identify outcome-related genes and dysregulated pathways remains unknown. Molecular marker such as BNP, CRP and other serum inflammatory markers have got the notice at this point. However, these biomarkers exhibit elevated levels in patients with thyroid disease, renal failure and congestive heart failure. In this study, three groups of microarray data sets (GES66360, GSE48060, GSE29532) were collected from GEO, a total of 99, 52 and 55 samples, respectively...

Galectin-3 is a β-galactoside-binding lectin which is important in cell proliferation and apoptotic regulation. Recently, serum galectin-3 has been shown to have prognostic value as a biomarker in heart failure. Encephalomyocarditis virus (EMCV) can cause severe myocarditis, congestive heart failure and dilated cardiomyopathy as well as encephalitis in various animals including mice. The pathophysiological role of galectin-3 in acute myocarditis following viral infection is not fully understood. The goal of this study is to determine the cardiac localization and the time-course of galectin-3 expression in heart failure after viral inoculation with EMCV...
