    Background: For a patient cohort, access to linkable population-based registries permits sampling of a comparison cohort from the general population, thereby contributing to the understanding of the disease in a population context. However, sampling without replacement in random order can lead...

Franklin; Costanzo, Maria Rosa; De Marco, Teresa; Lopatin, Margarita; Wynne, Janet; Mills, Roger M.; Emerman, Charles L. // Cardiology;2009, Vol. 113 Issue 1, p12 

    The optimal use of diuretics in decompensated heart failure remains uncertain. We analyzed data from the ADHERE registry to look at the impact of diuretic dosing. 62,866 patients receiving <160 mg and 19,674 patients ≥160 mg of furosemide were analyzed. The patients receiving the lower...

V.; Petrie, John R.; McAlister, Finlay A. // Diabetes Care;Jun2010, Vol. 33 Issue 6, p1213 

    OBJECTIVE -- Diabetes and heart failure commonly coexist, and prior studies have suggested better outcomes with metformin than other antidiabetic agents. We designed this study to determine whether this association reflects a beneficial effect of metformin or a harmful effect of other agents....

    Background: Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) has been extensively demonstrated to benefit heart failure patients, but the role of underlying heart failure etiology in the outcomes was not consistently proven. This meta-analysis aimed to determine whether efficacy and effectiveness of CRT...
