The results of a meta-analysis published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition indicate that supplementing with coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is associated with an improvement in ejection fraction in men and women with congestive heart failure.

The latest study also found that heart failure patients whose ejection fraction is not reduced have a lower mortality risk that those with reduced ejection fraction.
My left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) was about 20 percent.
If such trials prove that T-wave alternans and other new measures can supplement ejection fraction in clinical evaluation of patients, doctors may save more lives even though they implant fewer devices than they do now.
Methods: The study groups consisted of 35 normals, 26 with LV dysfunction, and 60 with aortic regurgitation (AR): 40 with ejection fraction (EF) >50% (AR+Normal EF) and 20 with ejection fraction [greater than or equal to]50% (AR+Reduced EF).
Despite an initial left ventricular systolic ejection fraction of 20% and evidence of global hypokinesis on echocardiography, treatment with antithyroid agents led to rapid improvement in his clinical status and normalization of his ejection fraction.
Patel and colleagues said the study involved 20 patients with severe heart failure who had ejection fractions less than 35% (a patient with good heart function has an ejection fraction of at least 55%).
Ejection fraction is a standard measure of heart performance determined by the total amount of blood the left ventricle pumps out with each beat.
