Abstract

Among patients with heart failure with reduced ejection fraction, investigators have repeatedly identified a subgroup whose left ventricular ejection fraction and structural remodeling can improve to normal or nearly normal levels with or without medical therapy. This subgroup of patients with "heart failure with improved ejection fraction" has distinct clinical characteristics and a more favorable prognosis compared with patients who continue to have reduced ejection fraction. However, many of these patients also manifest clinical and biochemical signs of incomplete resolution of heart failure pathophysiology and remain at some risk of adverse outcomes, thus indicating that they may not have completely recovered. Although rigorous evidence on managing these patients is sparse, there are several reasons to recommend continuation of heart failure therapies, including device therapies, to prevent clinical deterioration. Notable exceptions to this recommendation may include patients who recover from peripartum cardiomyopathy, fulminant myocarditis, or stress cardiomyopathy, whose excellent long-term prognoses may imply true myocardial recovery. More research on these patients is needed to better understand the mechanisms that lead to improvement in ejection fraction and to guide their clinical management.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 66. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 26 January 2019.
All research outputs
#236,135
of 12,818,993 outputs
Outputs from JACC: Heart Failure
#56
of 773 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#10,454
of 267,015 outputs
Outputs of similar age from JACC: Heart Failure
#3
of 24 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,818,993 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 98th percentile: it's in the top 5% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 773 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 22.0. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 92% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 267,015 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 96% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 24 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 87% of its contemporaries.
