Abstract:

Heart failure affects approximately 4.9 million individuals in the United States, with approximately 400,000 new diagnoses annually, and carries a 50% five-year mortality. Direct costs for management of heart failure are estimated at 20 billion dollars annually. Because heart failure is largely a disorder of the elderly, the incidence of heart failure goes up exponentially as the number of people who live into old age increases. Cardiologist Marvin. A. Konstam, MD, uses the setting of patient cases to explore how the increased understanding of the pathophsyiology of heart failure and the results of clinical trials have led to the establishment of clinical practice guidelines for the management of patients with heart failure. He also presents some highlights of the heart-failure-disease-management program that is helping to improve the quality of care and clinical outcomes in patients with advanced heart failure.
