The Year in Cardiology 2013: heart failure


Ertl, G; Ruschitzka, F (2014). The Year in Cardiology 2013: heart failure. European Heart Journal, 35(7):470-473.

Abstract

Heart failure has become a worldwide epidemic of the 21st century with increasing impact on healthcare systems. The 2012 ESC and 2013 ACCF/AHA guidelines have set the stage for current therapy to reduce mortality and morbidity. There is a dawn of hope for therapy of acute and diastolic heart failure; it has become clearer that patients benefit from mitral reconstruction and which patients benefit from heart failure management programmes; genetics and proteomics advance in great strides; competing concepts of cell therapy seem to spiral, hopefully upwards; and we can further nurture our hope for evidence-based individualized diagnostic and therapy.
