Correlation of Brain Natriuretic Peptide and Microalbuminuria in Patients with Heart Failure

Issue: 
Pages: 
658–61
Synopsis: 
This present study indicated that the plasma levels of NTproBNP and MAU increased synchronously in pace with the aggravation of heart failure, and there was a positive correlation between MAU and NT-proBNP. To some extent, monitoring MAU might replace monitoring NTproBNP in patients with heart failure.
ABSTRACT
 
Objective: To evaluate the changes of plasma levels of N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic pepide (NTproBNP) and microalbuminuria (MAU) in patients with heart failure and the correlation between them.

Characteristics, Treatment and Short-term Survival of Patients with Heart Failure in a Cardiology Private Practice in Jamaica

Issue: 
Pages: 
139–43
Synopsis: 
A retrospective analysis of outpatients with heart failure revealed rates of angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor and β blocker use similar to those achieved in recent randomized trials. Short-term survival was high.

ABSTRACT

Background: Randomized clinical trials have demonstrated improvement in mortality with angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEIs), β blockers and aldosterone antagonists. The use of these lifesaving
treatments remain inadequate.

Aim: To determine the clinical features, aetiology, treatment and short-term survival of heart failure in a cardiology private practice in Jamaica.

Use What You Have: Biological Assistance for the Treatment of Heart Failure in the Caribbean

Issue: 
Pages: 
65–9
Synopsis: 
Heart transplant mechanical assist are not economically viable for the treatment of Caribbean patients with endstage heart failure. Biological cardiac assist offers the potential for an inexpensive, effective and accessible alternative therapy.
