During a satellite symposium at ESC Heart Failure 2017 in Paris, organised by PACE-CME, the increased CV risk in diabetic patients with HF was discussed, and which novel treatments can be considered in these patients.
Symposium held during Heart failure 2017, Paris, France
Diabetes and renal dysfunction are very common in patients with heart failure. Prof. Martin Cowie discusses the relationship and the cardiovascular effect of new therapeutic classes to control diabetes in high-risk patients.
Diabetes and diabetic kidney disease are associated with increased risk of cardiovascular disease and remarkably shortened life expectancy. Prof. Per-Henrik Groop explains the clinical implications of SGLT2-inhibtion, based on EMPA REG Outcome.
Heart failure is the most disabling and deadly complication of diabetes. Prof. John McMurray summarizes the results with various new treatments for diabetes that may affect the risk of developing heart failure.
