• Additional burden of iron deficiency in heart failure patients beyond the cardio-renal anaemia syndrome: findings from the BIOSTAT-CHF study 

      Alnuwaysir, Ridha I.S.; Grote Beverborg, Niels; Hoes, Martijn F.; Markousis-Mavrogenis, George; Gomez, Karla A.; van der Wal, Haye H.; Cleland, John G.; Dickstein, Kenneth; Lang, Chim C.; Ng, Leong L.; Ponikowski, Piotr; Anker, Stefan D.; van Veldhuisen, Dirk J.; Voors, Adriaan A.; van der Meer, Peter (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2022)
      Aims Whereas the combination of anaemia and chronic kidney disease (CKD) has been extensively studied in patients with heart failure (HF), the contribution of iron deficiency (ID) to this dysfunctional interplay is unknown. ...
    • Clinical impact of changes in mitral regurgitation severity after medical therapy optimization in heart failure 

      Pagnesi, Matteo; Adamo, Marianna; Sama, Iziah E.; Anker, Stefan D.; Cleland, John G.; Dickstein, Kenneth; Filippatos, Gerasimos S.; Inciardi, Riccardo M.; Lang, Chim C.; Lombardi, Carlo; Ng, Leong L.; Ponikowski, Piotr; Samani, Nilesh J.; Zannad, Faiez; van Veldhuisen, Dirk J.; Voors, Adriaan A.; Metra, Marco (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2022)
      Background: Few data are available regarding changes in mitral regurgitation (MR) severity with guideline-recommended medical therapy (GRMT) in heart failure (HF). Our aim was to evaluate the evolution and impact of MR ...
    • Clinical implications of left atrial changes after optimization of medical therapy in patients with heart failure 

      Inciardi, Riccardo M.; Pagnesi, Matteo; Lombardi, Carlo M.; Anker, Stefan D.; Cleland, John G.; Dickstein, Kenneth; Filippatos, Gerasimos S.; Lang, Chim C.; Ng, Leong L.; Pellicori, Pierpaolo; Ponikowski, Piotr; Samani, Nilesh J.; Zannad, Faiez; van Veldhuisen, Dirk J.; Solomon, Scott D.; Voors, Adriaan A.; Metra, Marco (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2022)
      Aims Limited data exist regarding the prognostic relevance of changes in left atrial (LA) dimensions in patients with heart failure (HF). We assessed changes in LA dimension and their relation with outcomes after optimization ...
    • Clinical implications of low estimated protein intake in patients with heart failure 

      Streng, Koen W.; Hillege, Hans L.; ter Maaten, Jozine M.; van Veldhuisen, Dirk J.; Dickstein, Kenneth; Ng, Leong L.; Samani, Nilesh J.; Metra, Marco; Ponikowski, Piotr; Cleland, John G.; Anker, Stefan D.; Romaine, Simon P.R.; Damman, Kevin; van der Meer, Peter; Lang, Chim C.; Voors, Adriaan A. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2022)
      Background: A higher protein intake has been associated with a higher muscle mass and lower mortality rates in the general population, but data about protein intake and survival in patients with heart failure (HF) are ...
    • Impact of mitral regurgitation in patients with worsening heart failure: insights from BIOSTAT-CHF 

      Pagnesi, Matteo; Adamo, Marianna; Sama, Iziah E.; Anker, Stefan D.; Cleland, John G.; Dickstein, Kenneth; Filippatos, Gerasimos S.; Lang, Chim C.; Ng, Leong L.; Ponikowski, Piotr; Ravera, Alice; Samani, Nilesh J.; Zannad, Faiez; van Veldhuisen, Dirk J.; Voors, Adriaan A.; Metra, Marco (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Aims Few data regarding the prevalence and prognostic impact of mitral regurgitation (MR) in patients with worsening chronic or new-onset acute heart failure (HF) are available. We investigated the role of MR in the BIOlogy ...
    • Impaired high-density lipoprotein function in patients with heart failure 

      Emmens, Johanna E.; Jia, Congzhuo; Ng, Leong L.; van Veldhuisen, Dirk J.; Dickstein, Kenneth; Anker, Stefan D.; Lang, Chim C.; Filippatos, Gerasimos; Cleland, John G.; Metra, Marco; Voors, Adriaan A.; de Boer, Rudolf A.; Tietge, Uwe J. F. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Background We recently showed that, in patients with heart failure, lower high‐density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol concentration was a strong predictor of death or hospitalization for heart failure. In a follow‐up study, ...
    • The value of spot urinary creatinine as a marker of muscle wasting in patients with new-onset or worsening heart failure 

      Pandhi, Paloma; Streng, Koen W.; Anker, Stefan D.; Cleland, John G.; Damman, Kevin; Dickstein, Kenneth; Pellicori, Pierpaolo; Lang, Chim C.; Ng, Leong; Samani, Nilesh J.; Zannad, Faiez; Metra, Marco; Rossignol, Patrick; Filippatos, Gerasimos; van Veldhuisen, Dirk J.; Voors, Adriaan A.; ter Maaten, Jozine M. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Background Muscle wasting and unintentional weight loss (cachexia) have been associated with worse outcomes in heart failure (HF), but timely identification of these adverse phenomena is difficult. Spot urinary creatinine ...
