BCS 2017: spotlight on heart failure

BJC Staff, Dr Richard Crawley, Dr Brian Halliday, Dr Rosita Zakeri

Abstract

Landmark trials in heart failure – 30 years from CONSENSUS With 2017 marking the 30th year since the publication of CONSENSUS,1 which first reported a reduction in mortality with enalapril versus placebo in patients with advanced heart failure (HF), the BCS held a dedicated session to review the seminal clinical trials and advances in chronic heart failure management in this period. Dr Rosita Zakeri (Royal Brompton Hospital, London) reviewed this session for us and spoke to the BJC afterwards. Rosita Zakeri The era of vasodilator therapy for heart failure began in the 1990s. Professor Karl Swedberg (University of Gothenberg, Sweden) began

Abstract

Background Heart failure, a constellation of signs and symptoms in the presence of abnormal cardiac function, continues to represent a significant health problem within the UK, and, indeed, the wider developed world. In 2011, one in nine death certificates in the United States recorded heart failure as a contributing cause, and it was ascribed to being the direct underlying cause in 20% of cases.1 The current prevalence estimate for heart failure in the developed world is approximately 2%, which is a significant proportion of adults in industrialised society.2 Van Reit and colleagues have demonstrated from a systematic analysis of 25 study po

Clinical evidence to support the use of sacubitril/valsartan (LCZ696)

Pierpaolo Pellicori, Andrew L Clark

Abstract

The evidence in heart failure and reduced left ventricular ejection fraction PARADIGM-HF1 was a double-blind, randomised-controlled trial in which 8,442 patients with chronic symptomatic heart failure (New York Heart Association [NYHA] class II–IV) and a reduced left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) <40% (changed to ≤35% during the course of the study) were randomised to receive enalapril (10 mg twice daily) or sacubitril/valsartan (200 mg twice daily)*. Entry criteria also included a raised natriuretic peptide (NP) level (brain natriuretic peptide [BNP] ≥150 pg/ml or N-terminal proBNP [NTproBNP] ≥600 pg/ml, although for patien
