This document concerns an update of the “2013 ACCF/AHA Guidelines for the Management of Heart Failure” [1] in areas in which new evidence has emerged since this publication. To achieve this, and for future publishes, the Heart Failure Society of America (HFSA) has partnered.

This update represents the second part of a 2-stage publication; the first part has been published as the “2016 ACC/AHA/HFSA Focused Update on New Pharmacological Therapy for Heart Failure” [2]. This first part included guidance on new therapies, including an angiotensin receptor-neprilysin inhibitor (ARNI) and a sinoatrial node modulator.

The current second part of the document includes revision of the 2013 sections on biomarkers, new therapies indicated for stage C heart failure (HF) with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF), updates on HF with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF), new data on important comorbidities and new insights into the prevention of HF.
