Heart failure is a costly and difficult disease to treat. However, new metrics make it an imperative to keep these patients out of the hospital. Implementing and maintaining patients on successful treatment plans is difficult. A multitude of factors make transitioning care to the outpatient setting difficult. A careful and well-orchestrated team of cardiologists, general practitioners, nurses, and ancillary support staff can make an important difference to patient care. A strong body of literatu...

Background To evaluate the effectiveness of Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Imaging (CMR) in evaluation of cardiac masses. Cardiac masses are a rare but important finding on cardiac imaging. Differentiating benign from malignant masses is crucial as an accurate diagnosis can affect the work up and management of the patient. To date very few studies have evaluated the effectiveness of CMR in aiding the diagnosis of mass found by echo or CT.

Background To examine the diagnostic accuracy of cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) in differentiating thrombus from myxoma Thrombus is thought not to enhance on CMR, myxomas are thought to show mild heterogenous enhancement on delayed imaging. It is sometimes difficult to differentiate them, and this may lead to misdiagnosis, which would significantly impact treatment. Thrombi can have varying signal intensities depending on their age and fibrous composition in T1 and T2 imaging.

Purpose A well-established complication of right ventricular endomyocardial biopsy (EMB) used for the diagnosis of acute cellular rejection is damage to the tricuspid valve and subsequent tricuspid regurgitant flow. Since the advent of Molecular Diagnostic Testing (MDT) as a screening test for determining which patients require EMB, the need for EMB at our center has decreased significantly. We hypothesized that the severity of tricuspid regurgitation (TR) should therefore be reduced with greate...

Purpose Patients with advanced heart failure (HF) have improved survival with LVADs. Some patients receive intravenous, continuous milrinone as support prior to transplant. Hospital readmission are frequent events in patients with HF. There is little data on hospital readmissions with LVAD compared to milrinone. The aim of our study was to compare the readmission and HF exacerbation rates for milrinone patients compared to LVAD patients. Methods and Materials Readmission rates were compared for ...

Purpose Type 2 Cardiorenal Syndrome after LVAD has not been well evaluated in patients with Mechanical Circulatory Support. It has been observed over time that a subset of patients continues to develop worsening renal function over time despite maximal medical therapy and LVAD support. It also appears that these patients maintain higher Doppler pressure recordings over time despite aggressive blood pressure management. Methods and Materials We performed a retrospective chart review of all 27 Des...
