DAPA-HF is an international, multi-centre, parallel group, randomised, double-blind trial in patients with heart failure and reduced ejection fraction (LVEF = 40%), with and without type-2 diabetes, designed to evaluate the effect of Farxiga 10mg, compared with placebo, given once daily in addition to standard of care.
"Among patients with a recent myocardial infarction and an ejection fraction of 35 percent or less, the wearable cardioverter-defibrillator did not lead to a significantly lower rate of the primary outcome of arrhythmic death than control," the authors write.
The ejection fraction in the control animal declined, whereas the treated animals continued to improve.
The Vest Prevention of Early Sudden Death Trial (VEST) randomized patients within the first 7 days following an acute MI who met the reduced left ventricular ejection fraction criterion.
The demographics, clinical presentation, comorbidities, echocardiographic data e.g ejection fraction, location of the VSD, use of IABP, surgical procedures and outcomes were reviewed.
The data suggests that dietary supplementation may be a valuable addition to treatment for exercise intolerance among heart failure patients with reduced ejection fraction, Coggan said.
His echocardiogram showed a very poor bi-ventricular function with a left ventricular ejection fraction of 20% and right ventricular ejection fraction of 30%.
An ejection fraction of 35 to 39 percent is moderately below normal and is considered mild heart failure, when the left ventricle doesn't contract strongly enough and less blood is pumped throughout the body.
LV thrombus formation and peripheral embolization are extremely rare in patients with a normal ejection fraction and without any etiologic cause, as in our case (7).
What to do: Talk to your doctor about taking fish oil if you've had a recent heart attack or have heart failure with a reduced ejection fraction.
This has previously been described as a decrease of more de 10% in left ventricular ejection fraction and heart failure symptoms, for which intraventricular and interventricular dyssynchrony is the main cause.
