Freedom from failure: The British Society for Heart Failure Annual Meeting highlights

Sarah Birkhoelzer

Abstract

Heart failure as a neurohormonal disorder Professor Milton Packer (Baylor University Medical Center, Dallas, Texas, USA) highlighted in the Philip Poole Wilson Memorial lecture the journey through heart failure (HF) research and how common, important and serious it is with more deaths from HF than all cancers combined. The foundation of HF research is based on the view that it is a haemodynamic disease and, until 1970, diuretics were the prime focus of drug development. In the 1970s, vasodilator and inotropic drugs were developed to keep haemodynamic variables in the normal range and to stimulate cardiac contractility, which markedly improve

News from the BSH 21st Annual Autumn Meeting

Richard Baker

Abstract

NICE heart failure guidelines The latest National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidelines for management of chronic heart failure (NG 106)1 were presented by Dr Abdallah Al-Mohammed (Sheffield Teaching Hospitals). It was fascinating to hear Dr Al-Mohammed describe his work on producing the guidelines with respect to what recommendations the authors are permitted to include and how recommendations may be presented. Key changes include the removal of a history of a previous myocardial infarction from the initial assessment of a patient with suspected chronic heart failure. Other changes include the guidelines now using the te

British Society of Heart Failure Young Investigators’ Award

Abstract

Multipolar left ventricular pacing to optimise acute haemodynamic response to cardiac resynchronisation therapy SY Ahsan (presenting author), B Sabberwal, C Hayward, P Lambiase, M Thomas, GG Babu, S Aggarwal, MD Lowe, AWC Chow The Heart Hospital, Institute of Cardiovascular Science, University College Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, London Purpose: Cardiac resynchronisation therapy (CRT) reduces morbidity and mortality in a sub-group of patients with heart failure, though up to 30% of patients have no benefit. CRT patients are heterogeneous and an individualised approach to CRT may be needed to increase response rate. We evaluated the impact
