    Circ Heart Fail 6:853-61. 2013
    ..In the present study, proteomics identified significant changes in α-1-antichymotrypsin (ACT) levels during LVAD support. Moreover, the potential role of ACT in reverse remodeling was studied in detail...

    Sjoukje I Lok
    Department of Cardiology, University Medical Centre Utrecht, The Netherlands
    Eur J Heart Fail 14:1249-56. 2012
    ..Left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) provide unloading of the left ventricle, resulting in partial reverse remodelling. Our aim was to study GDF-15 in patients with a non-ischaemic dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) during LVAD support...

    ..In addition, prior definitions emphasising strict time windows, the lack of awareness and the rarity of the full-blown disease have sometimes resulted in the condition being overlooked and misdiagnosed...

    Department of Cardiology, University Medical Center, Utrecht, Netherlands
    Eur J Cardiothorac Surg 44:e233-8. 2013
    ..We evaluated our single-centre clinical experience with the HeartMate II (HM II) left ventricular assist device (LVAD) as a bridge to transplantation (BTT) in end-stage heart failure (HF) patients...

    Eur J Heart Fail 14:319-25. 2012
    ..In this study, we investigated whether there is difference in functional and haemodynamic recovery after implantation of pulsatile and continuous-flow pumps...
