Despite advances in heart failure (HF), mortality rates remain high and the affected population continues to grow. Improvement in symptomology, and quality of life is noted when exercise is included in the treatment plan. Despite this, exercise adherence is a challenge for people with HF. To...
Many heart failure (HF) hospital admissions are avoidable with appropriate surveillance and self-care support that HF Clinics can provide. Previous studies conducted vary in approach to surveillance. The goal of this study was to assess the impact of frequency of HF Clinic recall visits on...
While there may be numerous underlying origins, myocardial fibrosis is a common, unifying finding in various forms of heart disease. Unfortunately, its presence goes beyond simply being a herald of myocardial injury. The alterations in the extracellular space lead to abnormalities in both...
Mechanical circulatory support has become a therapeutic option for children with advanced heart failure. This type of support is often used to bridge patients to heart transplantation with approximately a third of all patients listed for transplant requiring some form of mechanical support. While...
Heart Failure (HF) is a complex syndrome that greatly contributes to declining physical function in older adults and causes a substantial economic burden for health care systems. Older adults at risk of developing HF typically have other comorbidities. In addition, patients with HF often...
Cardiac Fatty acids β-oxidation (FAO) markedly increases during maturation and become the major source of energy for the adult heart. However, excessive rates of FAO can compromise cardiac function in obesity, diabetes, and heart failure. Lysine acetylation has recently been identified as a...
Cardiac hypertrophy is a complex condition which is characterized by increased mass of the heart muscle. If untreated, cardiac hypertrophy can ultimately lead to heart failure (HF), arrhythmia and sudden death. Accumulating evidence suggest that pathological cardiac hypertrophy is strongly...
