Dataset of "Prospective Evaluation of Ventricular Assist Device Risk Scores’ Capacity to Predict Cardiopulmonary Exercise Parameters"
Full data of the study including: Mortality Cohort (Tab 1): status at 90-days following LVAD implantation, mortality/transplantation time following LVAD implantation (if applicable), risk scores (DTRS, HMRS, MELD, MELD-XI, MELD-Na), parameters used in the calculation of risk scores, baseline variables. CPET Cohort (Tab 2): Cardiopulmonary exercise test parameter values for the pre-implantation and post-implantation period (Further information about the CPET cohort patients can be found in the "Mortality Cohort" tab tracking patient study ID numbers). Reminder to prevent confusion: *Laboratory values <1 are considered as 1 while calculating MELD, MELD-XI, MELD-Na scores to avoid negative results in logarithms. *Serum sodium values higher than 140 and lower than 125 are considered as 140 and 125 respectively while calculating MELD-Na . Please read the explanations provided in the header cell of each parameter for further information. Any information that could possibly identify patients (such as names and implantation/test dates) are withheld in accordance with our institutional policy for patient confidentiality.
