Chronic heart failure

Find all the latest content on chronic heart failure published on this website.

A complex condition, long-term management of chronic heart failure demands an understanding of the underlying causes and symptoms as well as the skills and knowledge to provide an effective treatment that can offer quality of life for the patient. To do this, acquaintance with the latest tools, assist devices and techniques, various biosensors or biomarkers and the different imaging modalities available is essential. These, along with subjects such as adjunctive pharmacotherapy, vascular access or bleeding risks, can be found here…

Cardiac regenerative strategies for interventionalist

15 Sep 2017 - From EUROPCR 2017

Can we create new myocardia and develop a “cure” for heart failure? Faced with an array of medical and device treatment, G.G Toth, D. Burkhoff and W. Wojakowski underline what is missing in current strategies apart from heart transplants – Do they actually have an effect on the missing or remodeled myocytes? How could interventionalists replace muscle cells that have been destroyed or altered?  Current and past cell therapies are reviewed along with emerging data, types of cells tested as well as looking at delivery techniques or specific patient groups. Critical problems and limitations facing research are discussed to understand why advancing this therapy has been unsuccessful. Learn more…
