Duration: 1 Day
The understanding and treatment of chronic heart failure have undergone dramatic changes over the past several years, with the use of combination neurohormonal antagonism as the cornerstone of medical therapy coinciding with the advent of a new appreciation of the risks and therapies addressing electrical issues of the heart.
Many physicians including primary care and cardiovascular specialists are typically responsible for the care of the heart failure patient and must use the full array of available therapeutic options.
Device trials including implantable defibrillators and biventricular pacemakers for cardiac resynchronization have demonstrated significant morbidity and mortality benefits and are now considered standard of care for appropriate heart failure patients.
This symposium will address the compelling evidence for aggressive medical and device-based therapies for patients with chronic heart failure. The overall goal is the integration of medical, device, diagnostic and surgical therapies for our patients with chronic heart failure.
