Updates in Heart Failure: From Definition to Treatments and Everything In-Between
Join top heart failure experts Drs Butler, Januzzi, and Bailey as they discuss the latest data on the use of SGLT2 inhibitors in patients with heart failure.
There have been multiple randomized clinical trials demonstrating benefits for patients with heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF) and patients with heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) who received sodium-glucose cotransporter-2 (SGLT-2) inhibitors, including patients who did not have diabetes. The effects of these medications on hospitalizations for heart failure were consistent in independent trials and suggest that these agents also improve renal outcomes and reduce all-cause and cardiovascular death. In this live virtual meeting, our experts will help clinicians become familiar with the use of SGLT2 inhibitors, patient counseling, and risk mitigation in patients with heart failure.
