Abstract

Background Amyloidosis is a multisystem disease characterized by the deposition of misfolded insoluble precursor protein fibrils in several organs including the heart. Cardiac amyloidosis can result in a wide range of complications that may lead to significant morbidity and mortality. However, contemporary data in the United States (US) on cardiac amyloidosis is scarce despite these negative consequences. In view of this lack of contemporary data, we sort to assess the prevalence, trends of hospitalization, and outcomes of cardiovascular manifestations in amyloidosis. We also explored this retrospective data for factors that may be associated with in-hospital mortality of amyloidosis hospitalization. Methods We used the national (nationwide) inpatient sample (NIS) database from January 1, 2007 - December 31, 2014, of adult hospitalizations. We studied the prevalence and trends of hospitalizations of amyloidosis among patient with or without cardiovascular co-morbidities. Results We identified 137,797 amyloidosis hospitalizations from 2007 to 2014 of which 87,164 (63.2%) had cardiovascular manifestations. The overall mean age was 70.3±12 years. There were more males (54.5%) overall. The trend of amyloidosis hospitalizations increased significantly from 2007 through 2014 (34 to 73 per 100,000, P
