The Trip Database is a leading resource to help health professionals find trustworthy answers to their clinical questions. Users can access the latest research evidence and guidance to answer their clinical questions. We have a large collection of systematic reviews, clinical guidelines, regulatory guidance, clinical trials and many other forms of evidence. If you wanted the latest trusted evidence on heart failure or other clinical topics then use Trip today.
This page lists the very latest high quality evidence on heart failure and also the most popular articles. Popularity measured by the number of times the articles have been clicked on by fellow users in the last twelve months.
What is Trip?
Trip is a clinical search engine designed to allow users to quickly and easily find and use high-quality research evidence to support their practice and/or care.
Trip has been online since 1997 and in that time has developed into the internet’s premier source of evidence-based content. Our motto is ‘Find evidence fast’ and this is something we aim to deliver for every single search.
As well as research evidence we also allow clinicians to search across other content types including images, videos, patient information leaflets, educational courses and news.

Effect of the self-management education program on the quality of life in people with chronic heartfailure: a randomized controlled trial Chronic HeartFailure (CHF) is a syndrome that negatively affects a person's Quality of Life (QOL). The efficient self-management education program increases the individual's abilities and skills for following and participating in a long-term healthcare plan.The aim of this study was to determine the effect of the self-management education program on QOL (...) sessions followed for a 3-month period. The Iranian heartfailure QOL questionnaire was used for data collection before and after the intervention. The independent-samples and paired-samples t-tests, Chi-square and Fisher exact tests were used for data analysis via the SPSS v.16 software. P<0.05 was considered statistically significant.No statistically significant differences were reported between the groups in terms of demographic and clinical characteristics, indicating that they were homogeneous
Identifying cutâ€off scores for interpretation of the HeartFailure Impact Questionnaire Heartfailure (HF) influences health-related quality of life. However, the factors that contribute to health-related quality of life remain unclear in Taiwan. We aim to identify the factors influencing health-related quality of life in HF patients.Hospitalized HF (N = 225) patients were included from April 2011 to April 2014. Health-related quality of life was assessed by using the 36-Item Short-Form (...) Health Survey (SF-36) and the Minnesota Living with HeartFailure Questionnaire. A new cut-off was conducted based on the combination of SF-36 and Minnesota Living with HeartFailure questionnaire.There were significant differences between good and poor quality groups on age, gender, education levels, occupational classification caregiver, New York Heart Association classes, and the numbers of comorbidities. The logistic regression analysis showed that the number of comorbidities was more than three
for HeartFailure) trial, we are investigating whether these acute haemodynamic improvements translate into improvements in exercise capacity and heartfailure symptoms.This multicentre, double-blind, randomized, crossover study aims to randomize 160 patients with PR prolongation (≥200 ms), LV impairment (EF ≤ 40%), and either narrow QRS (≤140 ms) or right bundle branch block. All patients receive a cardiac device with leads positioned in the right atrium and the His bundle. Eligible patients also (...) Rationale and design of the randomized multicentre His Optimized Pacing Evaluated for HeartFailure (HOPEâ€HF) trial In patients with heartfailure and a pathologically prolonged PR interval, left ventricular (LV) filling can be improved by shortening atrioventricular delay using His-bundle pacing. His-bundle pacing delivers physiological ventricular activation and has been shown to improve acute haemodynamic function in this group of patients. In the HOPE-HF (His Optimized Pacing Evaluated
studied subjects with HFpEF (n = 28) and HFrEF (n = 25) and without HF (n = 71). Left ventricular (LV) mass and left atrial (LA) volumes were measured with cardiac magnetic resonance imaging. Arginine vasopressin and ANP were measured with enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Arginine vasopressin levels were significantly greater in HFpEF [0.96 pg/mL; 95% confidence interval (CI) = 0.83-1.1 pg/mL] compared with subjects without HF (0.69 pg/mL; 95% CI = 0.6-0.77 pg/mL; P = 0.0002). Heartfailure (...) Association of arginine vasopressin with low atrial natriuretic peptide levels, left ventricular remodelling, and outcomes in adults with and without heartfailure The arginine vasopressin (AVP) pathway has been extensively studied in heartfailure (HF) with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF), but less is known about AVP in HF with preserved EF (HFpEF). Furthermore, the association between AVP and atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP, a well-known inhibitor of AVP secretion) in HF is unknown.We

A novel cardiac output response to stress test developed to improve diagnosis and monitoring of heartfailure in primary care Primary care physicians lack access to an objective cardiac function test. This study for the first time describes a novel cardiac output response to stress (CORS) test developed to improve diagnosis and monitoring of heartfailure in primary care and investigates its reproducibility.Prospective observational study recruited 32 consecutive primary care patients (age, 63 (...)

Actionable Metabolic Pathways in HeartFailure and Cancerâ€”Lessons From Cancer Cell Metabolism Recent advances in cancer cell metabolism provide unprecedented opportunities for a new understanding of heart metabolism and may offer new approaches for the treatment of heartfailure. Key questions driving the cancer field to understand how tumor cells reprogram metabolism and to benefit tumorigenesis are also applicable to the heart. Recent experimental and conceptual advances in cancer cell (...) metabolism provide the cardiovascular field with the unique opportunity to target metabolism. This review compares cancer cell metabolism and cardiac metabolism with an emphasis on strategies of cellular adaptation, and how to exploit metabolic changes for therapeutic benefit.
in PAP values in patients after MitraClip with PAP changes in patients without MitraClip.Among 28 patients with New York Heart Association III heartfailure with implanted PAP sensor for haemodynamic telemonitoring from a single centre, four patients (age 66 ± 6 years, left ventricular ejection fraction 21 ± 3%, and cardiac index 1.8 ± 0.3) received a MitraClip procedure and were compared with 24 patients (age 72 ± 8 years, left ventricular ejection fraction 26 ± 9.9%, and cardiac index 2.0 ± 1.0 (...) Daily nonâ€invasive haemodynamic telemonitoring for efficacy evaluation of MitraClipÂ® implantation in patients with advanced systolic heartfailure Patients with advanced systolic chronic heartfailure frequently suffer from progressive functional mitral regurgitation. We report our initial experience in patients with an implanted pulmonary artery pressure (PAP) sensor, who developed severe mitral regurgitation, which was treated with the MitraClip system. We non-invasively compared changes
