Plasma Catestatin Expression and Cardiometabolic Parameters in Patients With Congestive Heart Failure

The congestive heart failure (HF) is a condition associated with substantial morbidity, mortality, and high healthcare expenditures. From the pathophysiological standpoint, several mechanisms contribute to the progression and dysfunction of the failing heart such as an increased hemodynamic overload, impaired myocyte calcium cycling, upregulated apoptotic activity, deficient or increased production ...

Phase N/A

Exercise Training Associated With Inspiratory Muscle Training in Heart Failure

The investigators hypothesize that aerobic exercise training associated with respiratory muscle training will cause additional benefits in the autonomic control and respiratory function compared to isolated exercise training or respiratory training in chronic heart failure patients.

Phase N/A

Systematic Assessment and Targeted Improvement of Services Following Yearlong Surgical Outcomes Surveys

The overarching purpose of SATISFY-SOS is to implement a rigorous process to assess short-term and intermediate-term outcomes of surgical and procedural patients who receive anesthesia services at Barnes-Jewish Hospital facilities, located in St. Louis, Missouri. Specifically, patients will be followed for major morbidity events, for mortality, and for quality of ...

Phase N/A

Effects of Inspiratory Muscle and Endurance Training in Heart Failure Patients With Pacemaker

Heart failure patients with pacemaker will be included. Primary outcome measurement is respiratory muscle strength, secondary outcomes are functional exercise capacity, peripheral muscle strength, pulmonary functions, maximal exercise capacity, fatigue, quality of life, depression, physical activity.

Phase N/A

Contribution of Endothelin-1 to Exercise Intolerance in Heart Failure

Specific Aim 1 will determine the direct effect of vascular endothelin-1 (ET-1) on skeletal muscle vasoconstriction in HF and age-matched controls. Intra-arterial infusion of the ETA subtype receptor will be undertaken to pharmacologically probe disease-related changes in the ET-1 pathway at rest and during exercise. It is hypothesized that ET-1-mediated ...

Phase N/A

VItamin D as a Novel Determinant of Injurious Cardiac Remodelling After acuTE Myocardial Infarction

Participants Patients who have recently (<72 hours) suffered an acute myocardial infarction will be invited to participate. The immediate post-infarction period is one of particular anxiety for patients and their carers and the project has been designed following advice from Patient-Public-Involvement advisers and also after discussion of the project at ...

Phase N/A

Sildenafil for the Prevention of Right Heart Failure Following LVAD Implantation

Initially implanted as a bridge to transplantation, LVADs are increasingly used for the purpose of destination therapy. About 250 patients/year will receive LVAD device therapy in 12 implanting Canadian centres. Outcomes after LVAD implantation are critically dependent on right ventricular (RV) function. Development of right heart failure (RHF) in LVAD ...


Blood Flow Restriction Training in Chronic Heart Failure: an Effective Training Strategy?

Exercise training in CHF is a potentially effective intervention for improving symptomatic and prognostic outcomes, but remains underutilised in contemporary CHF management in the United Kingdom. This underutilisation may be partly the result of multiple approaches to training but also due to inconsistent and overall modest results of any of ...


Tolvaptan for Advanced or Refractory Heart Failure

Despite its demonstrated efficacy and tolerability, Tolvaptan remains underutilized for the treatment of acute decompensated heart failure (ADHF) in many centers. Post-hoc analysis suggests that Tolvaptan may provide optimal outcomes in patients with more advanced heart failure (HF) including those with cardiorenal syndrome, marked hyponatremia and severe congestion, or a ...


Electronic Health Record-leveraged Patient-centered Intensification of Chronic Care for HF

Multiple medications improve left ventricular remodeling, quality of life, and survival in patients with heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF). Unfortunately, the real-world use of HFrEF medications is suboptimal, particularly for more recently approved agents such as aldosterone antagonists. The introduction of sacubitril/valsartan and ivabradine add to already complex ...
