Article
Full-text available
Augmented peripheral chemoreceptor sensitivity (PChS) is a common feature of many sympathetically mediated diseases, among others, and it is an important mechanism of the pathophysiology of heart failure (HF). It is related not only to the greater severity of symptoms, especially to dyspnea and lower exercise tolerance but also to a greater prevale...

Full-text available
Acute heart failure (AHF) is a common and severe condition with a poor prognosis. Its course is often complicated by worsening renal function (WRF), exacerbating the outcome. The population of AHF patients experiencing WRF is heterogenous, and some novel possibilities for its analysis have recently emerged. Clustering is a machine learning (ML) tec...
Article
Full-text available
Background and Objectives: The assumption of responsibility in dealing with chronic diseases is of relevance in a resource-oriented and not only deficit-oriented medicine, especially in dealing with chronic diseases, including patients with chronic heart failure. The aim of the present study is to examine, based on the model of “locus of control”,...
Article
Full-text available
Despite the progress of its management, COVID-19 maintains an ominous condition which constitutes a threat, especially for the susceptible population. The cardiac injury occurs in approximately 30% of COVID-19 infections and is associated with a worse prognosis. The clinical presentation of cardiac involvement can be COVID-19-related myocarditis. O...
Article
Full-text available
Heart failure (HF) is one of the leading causes of mortality and hospitalization worldwide. The accurate prediction of mortality and readmission risk provides crucial information for guiding decision making. Unfortunately, traditional predictive models reached modest accuracy in HF populations. We therefore aimed to present predictive models based...
Article
Full-text available
Heart failure (HF) constitutes a significant clinical problem and is associated with a sizeable burden for the healthcare system. Numerous novel techniques, including device interventions, are investigated to improve clinical outcome. A review of the most notable currently studied devices targeting pathophysiological processes in HF was performed....
Article
Full-text available
Acute heart failure (AHF) is a life-threatening, heterogeneous disease requiring urgent diagnosis and treatment. The clinical severity and medical procedures differ according to a complex interplay between the deterioration cause, underlying cardiac substrate, and comorbidities. This study aimed to analyze the natural phenotypic heterogeneity of th...
Article
Full-text available
Heart failure is a major public health problem and, despite the constantly emerging, new, effective treatments, it remains a leading cause of morbidity and mortality. Reliable tools for early diagnosis and risk stratification are crucial in the management of HF. This explains a growing interest in the development of new biomarkers related to variou...
Article
Full-text available
With its complicated pathophysiology, high incidence and prevalence, heart failure remains a major public concern. In hopes of improving diagnosis, treatment and prognosis, the utility of many different biomarkers is researched vigorously around the world. In this review, biomarkers of myocardial remodeling and fibrosis (galectin-3, soluble isoform...
Article

Background: Cognitive impairment accompanying heart failure (HF) is an additional HF comorbidity, which may potentially affect the patient’s self-care and compliance. We aimed to assess cognitive function (CF) using an application with games created as a cognitive training tool for children and adults, applied using a tablet, and to compare the re...
Article
Full-text available
The assessment of functional severity of moderate coronary stenoses is challenging. Coronary angiography remains the standard technique for diagnosis, although, due to its limitations, it is frequently insufficient to detect relevant myocardial ischemia. Fractional flow reserve (FFR) is defined as the ratio between the mean hyperemic coronary arter...
Article
Full-text available
Heart failure is one of the leading causes of death in developed countries and remains a significant burden to the healthcare system. Fluid overload is a process responsible for the majority of the heart failure symptoms. Pharmacotherapy is a first-line treatment for this condition; however, due to the phenomenon of diuretic resistance, drug therap...

Aims: Most studies examined spot urine sodium's (sUNa+ ) prognostic utility during the early phase of acute heart failure (AHF) hospitalization. In AHF, sodium excretion is related to clinical status; therefore, we investigated the differences in the prognostic information of spot UNa+ throughout the course of hospitalization for AHF (admission vs...
Article
Ultrasound imaging of the musculoskeletal system is an important element of the diagnostic and therapeutic protocol. Clinical decisions, including those regarding surgical procedures, are often based solely on ultrasound imaging. However, detailed knowledge on the anatomy and a correct scanning technique are crucial for an accurate diagnosis. Moder...
