Wynette autopsy finds heart failure cause of death
Medications not confirmed, ruled out as link
Wynette May 20, 1999

Web posted at: 4:51 p.m. EDT (2051 GMT)
NASHVILLE, Tennessee (CNN) Almost five weeks after the body of country legend Tammy Wynette was exhumed at the insistence of her daughters, medical examiners say the results of an autopsy show that Wynette died of heart failure. "There were no blood clots in her lungs in the autopsy, or under microscopic examination," says Davidson County medical examiner Dr. Bruce Levy. "But there was significant evidence of previous blood clots which compromised her lungs and put pressure on her heart." Wynette, 55, died in April 1998 of what her personal physician, Dr. Wallis Marsh, diagnosed as a blood clot in her lungs. Such clots, along with intestinal ailments, were among several health problems suffered by the "First Lady of Country Music" in her last years. Levy says two drugs were found in Wynette's blood, both of them medications Wynette was known to be taking at the time of her death. But he added that there was no evidence of a third drug, Dilaudid, a painkiller known to dissipate in embalming fluid.

What is heart failure?
Despite the way it sounds, the term "heart failure" simply means that your heart isn't pumping blood as well as it should. Heart failure doesn't mean your heart has stopped working or that you are having a heart attack. Heart failure is also called congestive heart failure, or CHF. "Congestive" means fluid is building up in the body because the heart isn't pumping properly. Return to top
What causes heart failure?
Heart failure has many different causes. Sometimes the exact cause can't be found. The most common causes of heart failure are listed below:
  • Coronary artery disease (narrowing of the blood vessels to the heart)often people with heart failure have had a heart attack in the past Problems with the heart muscle itself (known as cardiomyopathy) High blood pressure (also known as hypertension) Problems with any of the heart valves Abnormal heart rhythms (also called arrythmias) Toxic substances (such as alcohol abuse) Congenital heart disease (a heart problem you were born with) Diabetes Thyroid problems

Congestive heart failure (CHF) is a progressively debilitating illness that eventually will lead to death. In this disease the heart gradually loses its ability to pump blood effectively. Without a good blood supply, muscles and organs don't get enough oxygen, causing various problems. Because blood doesn't circulate as it should, fluid backs up in the lungs and lower parts of the body. That's why people with this disease often have swelling in the feet and legs. The body is "congested" with fluid, which is why this disease is called congestive heart failure.

CDC: Deaths from heart failure down
Notable drop in mortality rates for black adults
August 6, 1998
Web posted at: 7:42 p.m. EDT (2342 GMT) ATLANTA (CNN) Deaths caused by congestive heart failure are down, particularly among black adults, according to a report released Thursday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The study, covering years 1988 through 1995, found deaths from heart failure decreased 3 percent a year for black men and 2.2 percent a year for black women. For all elderly adults, heart-failure deaths fell 8 percent in the period. But the report also says that although death rates are down, the number of heart failure cases is rising. Researchers said possible reasons for the decline include improvements in treating risk factors, increased access to appropriate medical care and changes in death certificate coding. Kathy Harben of the CDC said doctor education is still an obstacle in treating heart failure.

more about Congestive Heart Failure

Heart Failure, Dropsy, or Pulmonary Edema
  • The heart has two sides: right and left. The right side of the heart pumps blood though the lungs. The left side of the heart then takes this freshly oxygenated blood, and pumps it to the other parts of the body, including the vital organs. When the left side of the heart is damaged or not working properly, it is unable to pump all the blood it receives. This will cause the fluid in the blood to back up into the lungs. It may also back up further and cause excess fluid in the liver, abdomen, and legs. This backup of fluid is called congestive

Causes of congestive heart failure
Prompt diagnosis may affect prognosis Amy C. Bales, MD, Matthew J. Sorrentino, MD VOL 101 / NO 1 / JANUARY 1997 / POSTGRADUATE MEDICINE This is the first of four articles on congestive heart failure Preview : Dyspnea on exertion is a well-recognized symptom of congestive heart failure (CHF) but is nonspecific in that it can also result from pulmonary diseases, obesity, anxiety, and other conditions. Physical examination findings can be similarly nonspecific in cases of CHF. However, establishing the diagnosis as either systolic or diastolic heart failure and determining the underlying cause are important, since treatment can reverse the disease in some cases. The authors describe the conditions that lead to this progressive disease and summarize cost-effective patient evaluation. A n estimated 2 million Americans have congestive heart failure (CHF). Each year, nearly 500,000 new cases are diagnosed (1) and about $10 billion goes to direct healthcare expenditures (2). CHF morbidity and mortality rates are high; after onset of clinical symptoms, patients often have a marked decline in quality of life and functional status, and more than a third die within 2 years (1). The clinical syndrome of CHF occurs when cardiac dysfunction prevents adequate perfusion of peripheral tissues. Inadequate perfusion leads to stimulation of compensatory mechanisms, which are responsible for many of the clinical signs and symptoms of the condition. The different forms of heart failure are listed in table 1. The most common of these and the focus of this article is systolic heart failure, caused by contractile failure of the myocardium. Diastolic heart failure (see article

... Blood Pressure Lowering Regimen Delays the Progression of White Matter Hyperintensities in Patients With Stroke
White matter hyperintensities (WMHs) are observed on brain MRI’s in elderly people and people with stroke. They are areas of demyelination and infarct that manifest in clinical outcomes such as dementia, depression and gait disturbances. High blood pressure is known to be a risk factor for WMH and they are said to increase over time. Carole Dufouil, PhD et al from the INSERM in France studied whether lowering blood pressure would reduce the incidence of WHMs. This study, published in the September 13, 2005 issue of Circulation journal found that an active blood pressure-lowering regimen stopped or delayed the progression of WHMs in patients with cerebrovascular disease.

Causes Risk Factors
The term "heart failure" suggests that the heart has stopped working or has "failed." This is not the case. What it actually means is that the heart is working inefficiently, pumping too weakly. When this happens, fluid builds up in the lungs, among other organs, creating a feeling of breathlessness. Heart failure often is referred to as congestive heart failure, or CHF.

Use our calculator to find out. See the top five online resources for heart information Email this page Print this section The rising incidence of heart failure is related to several factors, including an aging population and a lowered death rate for people who have heart attacks. Although treatments for heart attacks have improved, they often damage the left ventricle, the heart's main pumping chamber. In addition, the high rate of obesity in America has escalated the incidence of diabetes and high blood pressure. Both of these conditions make the heart work harder, increasing the risk of heart failure. Content last updated: 7/1/05 Next Page

Heart failure occurs when the heart can’t pump enough blood to satisfy the needs of the body. The pumping power of the heart is reduced to below normal levels, which results in inadequate blood supply to other organs, such as the brain, liver and kidneys. Heart failure News Facts and figures Living with heart failure Treatment ... Feature articles The signs and symptoms of heart failure depend on which side of the heart is affected, but can include:

How do you get Heart Failure?
Heart failure has many causes. The main causes include coronary artery disease (hardening of the arteries), which can lead to a heart attack and/or weakness of the heart muscle, and untreated or uncontrolled high blood pressure, which can cause heart failure even without a heart attack. Other causes may include diseases of the heart valves and weakened heart muscle due to viral infections or their poisonous products (called toxins).
