BACKGROUND Anti-Ku is a rare antibody which can be positive in some rheumatic diseases and it might be related to cardiac involvement. Polymyositis is an inflammatory myopathy, and its cardiac involvement seldom presents as myopericarditis and anti-Ku positive. CASE PRESENTATION In this case, we report a mid-aged woman with chest pain, upper limbs weakness and fever unrelated with infection. The diagnosis of this case was unquestionably myopericarditis supported by ECG, cardiac MRI and negative ...

AIMS To determine the associations of long-term SBP (LT-SBP) levels with clinical outcomes and health-related quality of life in heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF). METHODS AND RESULTS We analyzed participants from the Treatment of Preserved Cardiac Function Heart Failure with an Aldosterone Antagonist (TOPCAT) study with available different SBP measurements from different follow-ups (n = 3310). LT-SBP was the mean SBP value from 4-week measurement to the last one. The outcom...

AIMS Heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF) and heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) had distinct haemodynamic characteristics in the setting of acute heart failure. The aim of our study is to evaluate the differential response to aggressive diuresis in HFrEF and HFpEF. METHODS AND RESULTS Patients in the Diuretic Optimization Strategies Evaluation trial with left ventricular ejection fraction measurement were included (n = 300) and classified into HFrEF [left ven...

Background: Liver dysfunction is prevalent in patients with heart failure (HF), but the prognostic significance of liver function tests (LFTs) remains controversial. Heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) had been introduced for some time, but no previous study had focused on LFTs in HFpEF. Thus, we aim to evaluate the prognostic significance of LFTs in well-defined HFpEF patients. Methods and Results: We conveyed a post hoc analysis of the TOPCAT trial. The primary outcome was t...

OBJECTIVE In patients with heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF), whether living alone could contribute to a poor prognosis remains unknown. We sought to investigate the association of living alone with clinical outcomes in patients with HFpEF. METHODS Symptomatic patients with HFpEF with a follow-up of 3.3 years (data collected from August 2006 to June 2013) in the TOPCAT trial were classified as patients living alone and those living with others. The primary outcome was define...

Whether visit-to-visit blood pressure variability (BPV) is associated with adverse outcomes in patients with heart failure (HF) with preserved ejection fraction is unclear. We assessed these associ...

Background The C2HEST score has been validated for predicting AF in the general population or post-stroke patients. We aimed to assess whether this risk score could predict incident AF and other clinical outcomes in heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) patients. Methods A total of 2202 HFpEF patients without baseline AF in the TOPCAT trial were stratified by baseline C2HEST score. Cox proportional hazard model and competing risk regression model was used to explore the relation...

BACKGROUND Recent studies have reported the effects of metabolic syndrome (MetS) and its components on atrial fibrillation (AF), but the results remain controversial. Therefore, we performed a meta-analysis to evaluate the relationship between MetS and AF risk. METHODS Studies were searched from the Cochrane library, PubMed, and Embase databases through May 2020. Adjusted hazard ratios (HRs) and its corresponding 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were extracted and then pooled by using a random eff...

AIMS Coexisting of atrial fibrillation (AF) in patients with heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) could increase the risk of mortality. In this study, we aimed to assess the values of the CHADS2, R2CHADS2, and CHA2DS2-VASc scores for AF prediction in HFpEF patients. METHODS AND RESULTS We performed a retrospective analysis on symptomatic HFpEF patients in the TOPCAT (Treatment of Preserved Cardiac Function Heart Failure with an Aldosterone Antagonist) trial. Associations of the...
