Heart failure constitutes a major public health problem. Its incidence continues to grow and its prognosis remains poor. Therapeutic approach of chronic heart failure with left ventricular systolic dysfunction is well codified. Recommended medical treatment is presented with the description of the different therapeutic classes. Recent advances are discussed. New therapeutic targets are described. Optimization of recognized treatment and application to heart failure of drugs used for other indications are developed. Therapeutic approach of heart failure with preserved ejection fraction is tackled but stays far less well defined. Many studies concerning treatment of acute heart failure are ongoing. [less ▲]

Inadvertent insertion of a defibrillation lead in the left ventricle is a rare complication generally underdiagnosed after device implantation. Management is not strictly codified due to the small number of observed cases. We report the case of a 78 year-old man in whom the diagnosis has been performed lately during an echocardiography.

Primary mitral regurgitation (MR) is the first cause of valvular regurgitation in Western countries. Echocardiography is the cornerstone for diagnosing MR and more specifically for establishing its aetiology and mechanism, for quantifying its severity, progression, and repercussion and for assessing the likelihood of successful of valve repair. Two-dimensional/three-dimensional transthoracic and transoesophageal echocardiography <br />are the most widely used methods. Interest is growing for exercise echocardiography particularly in patients in whom symptoms do not correlate well with MR severity and for risk stratification. The experience of multi-slice computed tomography in primary MR is still limited. Conversely, cardiovascular magnetic resonance has gained progressive relevance and represents the alternative method of choice. [less ▲]

Valve dysfunction is a common cardiovascular pathology. Despite significant clinical research, there is little formal study of how valve dysfunction affects overall circulatory dynamics. Validated models would offer the ability to better understand these dynamics and thus optimize diagnosis, as well as surgical and other interventions. A cardiovascular and circulatory system (CVS) model has already been validated in silico, and in several animal model studies. It accounts for valve dynamics using Heaviside functions to simulate a physiologically accurate “open on pressure, close on flow” law. However, it does not consider real-time valve opening dynamics and therefore does not fully capture valve dysfunction, particularly where the dysfunction involves partial closure. This research describes an updated version of this previous closed-loop CVS model that includes the progressive opening of the mitral valve, and is defined over the full cardiac cycle. Simulations of the cardiovascular system with healthy mitral valve are performed, and, the global hemodynamic behaviour is studied compared with previously validated results. The error between resulting pressure-volume (PV) loops of already validated CVS model and the new CVS model that includes the progressive opening of the mitral valve is assessed and remains within typical measurement error and variability. Simulations of ischemic mitral insufficiency are also performed. Pressure-Volume loops, transmitral flow evolution and mitral valve aperture area evolution follow reported measurements in shape, amplitude and trends. The resulting cardiovascular system model including mitral valve dynamics provides a foundation for clinical validation and the study of valvular dysfunction in vivo. The overall models and results could readily be generalised to other cardiac valves. [less ▲]
