The Intersection of Machine Learning and Medicine: New UW Medicine Study Reveals Key Predictors of Right Heart Failure Following LVAD Implantation

The Intersection of Machine Learning and Medicine: New UW Medicine Study Reveals Key Predictors of Right Heart Failure Following LVAD Implantation

If you’re a “Grey’s Anatomy” fan, chances are the word “LVAD wire” probably means something to you. Unlike the show, left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) possess capabilities far beyond the realm of hospital romance. An LVAD is a mechanical pump designed for patients with advanced heart failure. They are implanted in the apex of the …

1. In this analytical decision-making model study of 4.8 million adults with heart failure in the United States, the optimal implementation of sodium-glucose cotransporter-2 (SGLT-2) inhibitors over 3 years has been estimated to prevent or delay 630,000 events of worsening heart failure on the left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) spectrum, of which approximately 230,000 to …
