Article

Eating disorders (EDs) are serious, life-threatening psychiatric conditions associated with physical and psychosocial impairment, as well as high morbidity and mortality. Given the chronic refractory nature of EDs and the paucity of evidence-based treatments, there is a pressing need to identify novel approaches for this population. The noncompetit...

Background: Bulimia nervosa is a disabling psychiatric disorder that considerably impairs physical health, disrupts psychosocial functioning, and reduces overall quality of life. Despite available treatment, less than half of sufferers achieve recovery and approximately a third become chronically ill. Extreme and enduring cases are particularly res...
Article
Background and Objectives Chronic pain (CP) and cognitive decline (CD) are highly co-morbid and debilitating among older adults. We iteratively developed Active Brains–Fitbit (AB-F), a group mind-body activity program aided by a Fitbit that is feasible and associated with improvements in physical, cognitive, and emotional functioning when delivered...

Purpose: Cardiac allograft vasculopathy (CAV) continues to hinder the long-term success of heart transplant recipients. Redo-transplantation is currently the only definitive treatment for advanced CAV. We examined whether these patients are at similar CAV-risk with the second transplant Methods: Heart recipients from 1985 to 2011 at the UTAH progra...
Article
Full-text available
Purpose: Previous studies of fibrosis changes after mechanical unloading in LVAD patients yielded conflicting results. Those pulsatile era LVAD studies were small-scale and rarely correlated their findings with post-LVAD cardiac functional response. Methods: We prospectively evaluated 142 dilated cardiomyopathy patients who required durable LVAD an...
Article
Full-text available
Purpose: Inflammatory pathways have been widely implicated as major players in the pathogenesis of heart failure. We hypothesized that the inflammatory profile of patients requiring left ventricular assist device (LVAD) support is associated with the improvement in structure and function with chronic mechanical unloading. Methods: From 2008–2014, t...
Article
Full-text available
Purpose: Mechanical unloading induced by left ventricular assist devices (LVAD) reverses several but not all aspects of myocardial remodeling and usually leads to incomplete cardiac recovery in a subset of advanced heart failure (HF) patients. We sought to investigate the effects of mechanical unloading on myocardial energetics and the metabolic pe...
Article
Full-text available
Purpose: Inflammation plays a key role in the pathophysiology of heart failure (HF). Prior studies have shown correlation between systemic cytokines and adverse outcomes of HF patients. We hypothesized that inflammatory burden could correlate with the ability of the failing human heart to improve its endogenous function after mechanical unloading i...
