When used, ARBs should be initiated with the starting doses shown in Table Many of the considerations with initiation of an ARB are similar to those with initiation of an ACE inhibitor, as discussed previously. Blood pressure including postural blood pressure changes , renal function, and potassium should be reassessed within 1 to 2 weeks after initiation and followed closely after changes in dose. Titration is generally achieved by doubling doses. For stable patients, it is reasonable to add therapy with beta-blocking agents before full target doses of either ACE inhibitors or ARBs are reached.
The risks of ARBs are attributed to suppression of angiotensin stimulation. These risks of hypotension, renal dysfunction, and hyperkalemia are greater when combined with another inhibitor of this neurohormonal axis, such as ACE inhibitors or aldosterone antagonists. Use of 1 of the 3 beta blockers proven to reduce mortality eg, bisoprolol, carvedilol, and sustained-release metoprolol succinate is recommended for all patients with current or prior symptoms of HF r EF, unless contraindicated, to reduce morbidity and mortality.
The favorable effects of beta blockers were also observed in patients already taking ACE inhibitors. Three beta blockers have been shown to be effective in reducing the risk of death in patients with chronic HF r EF: bisoprolol and sustained-release metoprolol succinate , which selectively block beta-1—receptors; and carvedilol, which blocks alpha-1—, beta-1—, and beta-2—receptors.
Positive findings with these 3 agents, however, should not be considered a beta-blocker class effect. Bucindolol lacked uniform effectiveness across different populations, and short-acting metoprolol tartrate was less effective in HF clinical trials. Beta-1 selective blocker nebivolol demonstrated a modest reduction in the primary endpoint of all-cause mortality or cardiovascular hospitalization but did not affect mortality alone in an elderly population that included patients with HF p EF.
Beta blockers should be prescribed to all patients with stable HF r EF unless they have a contraindication to their use or are intolerant of these drugs. Because of its favorable effects on survival and disease progression, a clinical trial—proven beta blocker should be initiated as soon as HF r EF is diagnosed. Even when symptoms are mild or improve with other therapies, beta-blocker therapy is important and should not be delayed until symptoms return or disease progression is documented.
Therefore, even if patients have little disability and experience seemingly minimal symptomatic benefit, they should still be treated with a beta blocker to reduce the risks of disease progression, clinical deterioration, and sudden death. Patients need not take high doses of ACE inhibitors before initiation of beta-blocker therapy. In patients taking a low dose of an ACE inhibitor, the addition of a beta blocker produces a greater improvement in symptoms and reduction in the risk of death than does an increase in the dose of the ACE inhibitor, even to the target doses used in clinical trials.
Treatment with a beta blocker should be initiated at very low doses Table 15 , followed by gradual increments in dose if lower doses have been well tolerated. Patients should be monitored closely for changes in vital signs and symptoms during this uptitration period. Planned increments in the dose of a beta blocker should be delayed until any adverse effects observed with lower doses have disappeared.

Even if symptoms do not improve, long-term treatment should be maintained to reduce the risk of major clinical events. Abrupt withdrawal of treatment with a beta blocker can lead to clinical deterioration and should be avoided. Initiation of treatment with a beta blocker may produce 4 types of adverse reactions that require attention and management: fluid retention and worsening HF; fatigue; bradycardia or heart block; and hypotension. The occurrence of fluid retention or worsening HF is not generally a reason for the permanent withdrawal of treatment.
Such patients generally respond favorably to intensification of conventional therapy, and once treated, they remain excellent candidates for long-term treatment with a beta blocker. The slowing of heart rate and cardiac conduction produced by beta blockers is generally asymptomatic and thus requires no treatment; however, if the bradycardia is accompanied by dizziness or lightheadedness or if second- or third-degree heart block occurs, clinicians should decrease the dose of the beta blocker.
Clinicians may minimize the risk of hypotension by administering the beta blocker and ACE inhibitor at different times during the day. Hypotensive symptoms may also resolve after a decrease in the dose of diuretics in patients who are volume depleted. If hypotension is accompanied by other clinical evidence of hypoperfusion, beta-blocker therapy should be decreased or discontinued pending further patient evaluation.
The symptom of fatigue is multifactorial and is perhaps the hardest symptom to address with confidence. Although fatigue may be related to beta blockers, other causes of fatigue should be considered, including sleep apnea, overdiuresis, or depression. See Online Data Supplement 20 for additional data on beta blockers. Patients with NYHA class II HF should have a history of prior cardiovascular hospitalization or elevated plasma natriuretic peptide levels to be considered for aldosterone receptor antagonists.
Creatinine should be 2. Careful monitoring of potassium, renal function, and diuretic dosing should be performed at initiation and closely followed thereafter to minimize risk of hyperkalemia and renal insufficiency. Inappropriate use of aldosterone receptor antagonists is potentially harmful because of life-threatening hyperkalemia or renal insufficiency when serum creatinine is greater than 2.
Eplerenone has been shown to reduce all-cause deaths, cardiovascular deaths, or HF hospitalizations in a wider range of patients with HF r EF. Clinicians should strongly consider the addition of the aldosterone receptor antagonists spironolactone or eplerenone for all patients with HF r EF who are already on ACE inhibitors or ARBs and beta blockers. Careful patient selection and risk assessment with availability of close monitoring is essential in initiating the use of aldosterone receptor antagonists. Spironolactone should be initiated at a dose of After initiation of aldosterone receptor antagonists, potassium supplementation should be discontinued or reduced and carefully monitored in those with a history of hypokalemia; Table 17 , and patients should be counseled to avoid foods high in potassium and NSAIDs.
Potassium levels and renal function should be rechecked within 2 to 3 days and again at 7 days after initiation of an aldosterone receptor antagonist. Subsequent monitoring should be dictated by the general clinical stability of renal function and fluid status but should occur at least monthly for the first 3 months and every 3 months thereafter. Drug Dosing for Aldosterone Receptor Antagonists. Adapted from Butler et al. ACE indicates angiotensin-converting enzyme. There are limited data to support or refute that spironolactone and eplerenone are interchangeable.
The perceived difference between eplerenone and spironolactone is the selectivity of aldosterone receptor antagonism and not the effectiveness of blocking mineralocorticoid activity. The development of worsening renal function should lead to careful evaluation of the entire medical regimen and consideration for stopping the aldosterone receptor antagonist.
Patients should be instructed specifically to stop the aldosterone receptor antagonist during an episode of diarrhea or dehydration or while loop diuretic therapy is interrupted. A combination of hydralazine and isosorbide dinitrate can be useful to reduce morbidity or mortality in patients with current or prior symptomatic HF r EF who cannot be given an ACE inhibitor or ARB because of drug intolerance, hypotension, or renal insufficiency, unless contraindicated.
In a large-scale trial that compared the vasodilator combination with placebo, the use of hydralazine and isosorbide dinitrate reduced mortality but not hospitalizations in patients with HF treated with digoxin and diuretics but not an ACE inhibitor or beta blocker. The combination of hydralazine and isosorbide dinitrate is recommended for African Americans with HF r EF who remain symptomatic despite concomitant use of ACE inhibitors, beta blockers, and aldosterone antagonists. The combination of hydralazine and isosorbide dinitrate should not be used for the treatment of HF r EF in patients who have no prior use of standard neurohumoral antagonist therapy and should not be substituted for ACE inhibitor or ARB therapy in patients who are tolerating therapy without difficulty.
Despite the lack of data with the vasodilator combination in patients who are intolerant of ACE inhibitors or ARBs, the combined use of hydralazine and isosorbide dinitrate may be considered as a therapeutic option in such patients. If the fixed-dose combination is available, the initial dose should be 1 tablet containing The dose can be increased to 2 tablets 3 times daily for a total daily dose of mg of hydralazine hydrochloride and mg of isosorbide dinitrate. When the 2 drugs are used separately, both pills should be administered at least 3 times daily.
Initial low doses of the drugs given separately may be progressively increased to a goal similar to that achieved in the fixed-dose combination trial. Adherence to this combination has generally been poor because of the large number of tablets required, frequency of administration, and the high incidence of adverse reactions. Nevertheless, the benefit of these drugs can be substantial and warrant a slower titration of the drugs to enhance tolerance of the therapy. Adapted with permission from Fonarow et al. Several placebo-controlled trials have shown that treatment with digoxin for 1 to 3 months can improve symptoms, HRQOL, and exercise tolerance in patients with mild to moderate HF.
In a long-term trial that primarily enrolled patients with NYHA class II or III HF, treatment with digoxin for 2 to 5 years had no effect on mortality but modestly reduced the combined risk of death and hospitalization. Digoxin may also be added to the initial regimen in patients with severe symptoms who have not yet responded symptomatically during GDMT.
If a patient is taking digoxin but not an ACE inhibitor or a beta blocker, treatment with digoxin should not be withdrawn, but appropriate therapy with the neurohormonal antagonists should be instituted. Digoxin is prescribed occasionally in patients with HF and AF, but beta blockers are usually more effective when added to digoxin in controlling the ventricular response, particularly during exercise. Patients should not be given digoxin if they have significant sinus or atrioventricular block unless the block has been addressed with a permanent pacemaker.
The drug should be used cautiously in patients taking other drugs that can depress sinus or atrioventricular nodal function or affect digoxin levels eg, amiodarone or a beta blocker , even though such patients usually tolerate digoxin without difficulty. Therapy with digoxin is commonly initiated and maintained at a dose of 0. Low doses 0. There is no reason to use loading doses of digoxin to initiate therapy in patients with HF. Doses of digoxin that achieve a plasma concentration of drug in the range of 0.
There has been no prospective, randomized evaluation of the relative efficacy or safety of different plasma concentrations of digoxin. Retrospective analysis of 2 studies of digoxin withdrawal found that prevention of worsening HF by digoxin at lower concentrations in plasma 0. When administered with attention to dose and factors that alter its metabolism, digoxin is well tolerated by most patients with HF.
However, toxicity may also occur with lower digoxin levels, especially if hypokalemia, hypomagnesemia, or hypothyroidism coexists. In addition, a low lean body mass and impaired renal function can also elevate serum digoxin levels, which may explain the increased risk of digoxin toxicity in elderly patients. Anticoagulation is not recommended in patients with chronic HF r EF without AF, a prior thromboembolic event, or a cardioembolic source.
Patients with chronic HF r EF are at an increased risk of thromboembolic events due to stasis of blood in dilated hypokinetic cardiac chambers and in peripheral blood vessels , and perhaps due to increased activity of procoagulant factors. In several retrospective analyses, the risk of thromboembolic events was not lower in patients with HF taking warfarin than in patients not treated with antithrombotic drugs. Another trial compared aspirin with warfarin in patients with reduced LVEF, sinus rhythm, and no cardioembolic source and demonstrated no difference in either the primary outcome of death, stroke, or intracerebral hemorrhage.
There was a significant increase in major bleeding with warfarin. Given that there is no overall benefit of warfarin and an increased risk of bleeding, there is no compelling evidence to use warfarin or aspirin in patients with HF r EF in the absence of a specific indication. The efficacy of long-term warfarin for the prevention of stroke in patients with AF is well established. More recently, a revised score, CHADS2-VASc, has been suggested as more applicable to a wider range of patients, but this revised score has not yet been fully studied in patients with HF.
Regardless of whether patients receive rhythm or rate control, anticoagulation is recommended for patients with HF and AF for stroke prevention in the presence of at least 1 additional risk factor. For patients with HF and AF in the absence of another cardioembolic risk factor, anticoagulation is reasonable. Trials of newer oral anticoagulants have compared efficacy and safety with warfarin therapy rather than placebo. Several new oral anticoagulants are now available, including the factor Xa inhibitors apixaban and rivaroxaban and the direct thrombin inhibitor dabigatran. The fixed dosing together with fewer interactions may simplify patient management, particularly with the polypharmacy commonly seen in HF.
These drugs have a potential for an improved benefit—risk profile compared with warfarin, which may increase their use in practice, especially in those at increased bleeding risk. However, important adverse effects have been noted with these new anticoagulants, including gastrointestinal distress, which may limit compliance. At present, there is no commercially available agent to reverse the effect of these newer drugs.
As more detailed evaluations of the comparative benefits and risks of these newer agents in patients with HF are still pending, the writing committee considered their use in patients with HF and nonvalvular AF as an alternative to warfarin to be reasonable.
A Cochrane review failed to find sufficient evidence to support its use. Currently, data are insufficient to recommend aspirin for empiric primary prevention in HF patients known to be free of atherosclerotic disease and without additional risk factors. See Online Data Supplement 21 for additional data on anticoagulants. Statins are not beneficial as adjunctive therapy when prescribed solely for the diagnosis of HF in the absence of other indications for their use. Statin therapy has been broadly implicated in prevention of adverse cardiovascular events, including new-onset HF.
Originally designed to lower cholesterol in patients with cardiovascular disease, statins are increasingly recognized for their favorable effects on inflammation, oxidative stress, and vascular performance. Several observational and post hoc analyses from large clinical trials have implied that statin therapy may provide clinical benefit to patients with HF. See Online Data Supplement 22 for additional data on statin therapy.
In reported studies, this therapy has been safe and very well tolerated. See Online Data Supplement 23 for additional data on omega-3 fatty acids. Nutritional supplements as treatment for HF are not recommended in patients with current or prior symptoms of HF r EF. Hormonal therapies other than to correct deficiencies are not recommended for patients with current or prior symptoms of HF r EF.
Drugs known to adversely affect the clinical status of patients with current or prior symptoms of HF r EF are potentially harmful and should be avoided or withdrawn whenever possible eg, most antiarrhythmic drugs, most calcium channel—blocking drugs [except amlodipine], NSAIDs, or thiazolidinediones.
Long-term use of infused positive inotropic drugs is potentially harmful for patients with HF r EF, except as palliation for patients with end-stage disease who cannot be stabilized with standard medical treatment see recommendations for stage D. Patients with HF, particularly those treated with diuretics, may become deficient in vitamins and micronutrients. Several nutritional supplements eg, coenzyme Q10, carnitine, taurine, and antioxidants and hormonal therapies eg, growth hormone or thyroid hormone have been proposed for the treatment of HF. No clinical trials have demonstrated improved survival rates with use of nutritional or hormonal therapy, with the exception of omega-3 fatty acid supplementation as previously noted.
Some studies have suggested a possible effect for coenzyme Q10 in reduced hospitalization rates, dyspnea, and edema in patients with HF, but these benefits have not been seen uniformly. Until more data are available, nutritional supplements or hormonal therapies are not recommended for the treatment of HF. With atrial and ventricular arrhythmias contributing to the morbidity and mortality of HF, various classes of antiarrhythmic agents have been repeatedly studied in large RCTs.
Instead of conferring survival benefit, however, nearly all antiarrhythmic agents increase mortality in the HF population. Hence, class I sodium channel antagonists and the class III potassium channel blockers d-sotalol and dronedarone should be avoided in patients with HF. Amiodarone and dofetilide are the only antiarrhythmic agents to have neutral effects on mortality in clinical trials of patients with HF and thus are the preferred drugs for treating arrhythmias in this patient group.
See Online Data Supplement 24 for additional data on antiarrhythmic agents. Calcium channel—blocking drugs are not recommended as routine treatment for patients with HF r EF. By reducing peripheral vasoconstriction and LV afterload, calcium channel blockers were thought to have a potential role in the management of chronic HF.
However, first-generation dihydropyridine and nondihydropyridine calcium channel blockers also have myocardial depressant activity. Several clinical trials have demonstrated either no clinical benefit or even worse outcomes in patients with HF treated with these drugs. In general, calcium channel blockers should be avoided in patients with HF r EF. See Online Data Supplement 25 for additional data on calcium channel blockers. NSAIDs inhibit the synthesis of renal prostaglandins, which mediate vasodilation in the kidneys and directly inhibit sodium resorption in the thick ascending loop of Henle and collecting tubule.
Several observational cohort studies have revealed increased morbidity and mortality in patients with HF using either nonselective or selective NSAIDs. Thiazolidinediones increase insulin sensitivity by activating nuclear peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma. Expressed in virtually all tissues, peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma also regulates sodium reabsorption in the collecting ducts of the kidney. In clinical trials, thiazolidinediones have been associated with increased incidence of HF events, even in those without any prior history of clinical HF.
See Table 19 for a summary of recommendations from this section and Table 20 for strategies for achieving optimal GDMT; see Online Data Supplement 27 for additional data on thiazolidinediones. See Table 21 for a summary of recommendations from this section. Systolic and diastolic blood pressure should be controlled in patients with HF p EF in accordance with published clinical practice guidelines to prevent morbidity. Diuretics should be used for relief of symptoms due to volume overload in patients with HF p EF.
Routine use of nutritional supplements is not recommended for patients with HF p EF. Blood pressure control concordant with existing hypertension guidelines remains the most important recommendation in patients with HF p EF. Evidence from an RCT has shown that improved blood pressure control reduces hospitalization for HF, decreases cardiovascular events, and reduces HF mortality in patients without prevalent HF.
Specific blood pressure targets in HF p EF have not been firmly established; thus, the recommended targets are those used for general hypertensive populations. Specific to this population, it might be reasonable to consider revascularization in patients for whom ischemia appears to contribute to HF symptoms, although this determination can be difficult.
Theoretical mechanisms for the worsening of HF symptoms by AF among patients with HF p EF include shortened diastolic filling time with tachycardia and the loss of atrial contribution to LV diastolic filling. Conversely, chronotropic incompetence is also a concern. Slowing the heart rate is useful in tachycardia but not in normal resting heart rate; a slow heart rate prolongs diastasis and worsens chronotropic incompetence. Currently, there are no specific trials of rate versus rhythm control in HF p EF. See Table 22 for a summary of recommendations from this section.
The usefulness of implantation of an ICD is of uncertain benefit to prolong meaningful survival in patients with a high risk of nonsudden death as predicted by frequent hospitalizations, advanced frailty, or comorbidities such as systemic malignancy or severe renal dysfunction. See Figure 2 , indications for CRT therapy algorithm. Figure 2. Indications for CRT therapy algorithm.
Sudden death in HF r EF has been substantially decreased by neurohormonal antagonists that alter disease progression and also protect against arrhythmias. Nonetheless, patients with systolic dysfunction remain at increased risk for SCD due to ventricular tachyarrhythmias. Patients who have had sustained ventricular tachycardia, ventricular fibrillation, unexplained syncope, or cardiac arrest are at highest risk for recurrence.
ICD therapy for primary prevention was demonstrated to reduce all-cause mortality. Other smaller trials were consistent with this degree of benefit, except for patients within the first 40 days after acute MI, in whom SCD was decreased but there was an increase in other events such that there was no net benefit for survival.
A repeat assessment of ventricular function is appropriate to assess any recovery of ventricular function on GDMT that would be above the threshold where an ICD is indicated. This therapy will often improve ventricular function to a range for which the risk of sudden death is too low to warrant placement of an ICD. ICDs are highly effective in preventing death from ventricular arrhythmias, but frequent shocks can decrease HRQOL and lead to posttraumatic stress syndrome. Refined device programming can optimize pacing therapies to avert the need for shocks, minimize inappropriate shocks, and avoid aggravation of HF by frequent ventricular pacing.
Although there have been occasional recalls of device generators, these are exceedingly rare in comparison to complications related to intracardiac device leads, such as fracture and infection. ICDs are indicated only in patients with a reasonable expectation of survival with good functional status beyond a year, but the range of uncertainty remains wide. The complex decision about the relative risks and benefits of ICDs for primary prevention of SCD must be individualized for each patient.
Patients with multiple comorbidities have a higher rate of implant complications and higher competing risks of death from noncardiac causes. Similar considerations apply to the decision to replace the device generator. Consideration of ICD implantation is highly appropriate for shared decision making. Discussion should include the potential for SCD and nonsudden death from HF or noncardiac conditions. Information should be provided in a format that patients can understand about the estimated efficacy, safety, and potential complications of an ICD and the ease with which defibrillation can be inactivated if no longer desired.
In approximately one third of patients, HF progression is accompanied by substantial prolongation of the QRS interval, which is associated with worse outcome. Increased blood pressure with CRT can allow increased titration of neurohormonal antagonist medications that may further contribute to improvement. Improvement in survival is evident as early as the first 3 months of therapy. These results include patients with a wide range of QRS duration and, in most cases, sinus rhythm. Although it is still not possible to predict with confidence which patients will improve with CRT, further experiences have provided some clarification.
In general, most data derive from patients with class III symptoms. Patients labeled as having class IV symptoms account for a small minority of patients enrolled. In addition, patients with significant noncardiac limitations are unlikely to derive major benefit from CRT. Since publication of the HF guideline, 38 new evidence supports extension of CRT to patients with milder symptoms. LV remodeling was consistently reversed or halted, with benefit also in reduction of HF hospitalizations.
Although the weight of evidence is substantial for patients with class II symptoms, these CRT trials have included only patients with class I symptoms, most with concomitant ICD for the postinfarction indication. In addition, regular monitoring is required after device implantation because adjustment of HF therapies and reprogramming of device intervals may be required. The trials establishing the benefit of these interventions were conducted in centers offering expertise in both implantation and follow-up.
Recommendations for CRT are made with the expectation that they will be performed in centers with expertise and outcome comparable to that of the trials that provide the bases of evidence. The benefit—risk ratio for this intervention would be anticipated to be diminished for patients who do not have access to these specialized care settings or who are nonadherent. A subset of patients with chronic HF will continue to progress and develop persistently severe symptoms despite maximum GDMT. There are clinical clues that may assist clinicians in identifying patients who are progressing toward advanced HF Table Adapted from Metra et al.
Adapted from Russell et al. Profile 3 can be modified in this fashion if the patient is usually at home. If a Profile 7 patient meets the definition of frequent flyer, the patient should be moved to Profile 6 or worse. Other modifier options include arrhythmia, which should be used in the presence of recurrent ventricular tachyarrhythmias contributing to the overall clinical course eg, frequent implantable cardioverter-defibrillator shocks or requirement of external defibrillation, usually more than twice weekly ; or temporary circulatory support for hospitalized patients profiles 1—3.
Adapted from Stevenson et al. Patients considered to have stage D HF should be thoroughly evaluated to ascertain that the diagnosis is correct and that there are no remediable etiologies or alternative explanations for advanced symptoms. For example, it is important to determine that HF and not a concomitant pulmonary disorder is the basis of dyspnea. Similarly, in those with presumed cardiac cachexia, other causes of weight loss should be ruled out. Likewise, other reversible factors such as thyroid disorders should be treated. Severely symptomatic patients presenting with a new diagnosis of HF can often improve substantially if they are initially stabilized.
See Online Data Supplements 30 and 31 for additional data on therapies—important considerations and sildenafil. Fluid restriction 1. Recommendations for fluid restriction in HF are largely driven by clinical experience. Sodium and fluid balance recommendations are best implemented in the context of weight and symptom monitoring programs.
Routine strict fluid restriction in all patients with HF regardless of symptoms or other considerations does not appear to result in significant benefit. In 1 study, patients on a similar sodium and diuretic regimen showed higher readmission rates with higher fluid intake, suggesting that fluid intake affects HF outcomes. Fluid restriction, especially in conjunction with sodium restriction, enhances volume management with diuretics. Fluid restriction is important to manage hyponatremia, which is relatively common with advanced HF and portends a poor prognosis.
In hot or low-humidity climates, excessive fluid restriction predisposes patients with advanced HF to the risk of heat stroke. Hyponatremia in HF is primarily due to an inability to excrete free water. Norepinephrine and angiotensin II activation result in decreased sodium delivery to the distal tubule, whereas arginine vasopressin increases water absorption from the distal tubule. In addition, angiotensin II also promotes thirst. Thus, sodium and fluid restriction in advanced patients with HF is important. Until definitive therapy eg, coronary revascularization, MCS, heart transplantation or resolution of the acute precipitating problem, patients with cardiogenic shock should receive temporary intravenous inotropic support to maintain systemic perfusion and preserve end-organ performance.
Short-term, continuous intravenous inotropic support may be reasonable in those hospitalized patients presenting with documented severe systolic dysfunction who present with low blood pressure and significantly depressed cardiac output to maintain systemic perfusion and preserve end-organ performance. Long-term, continuous intravenous inotropic support may be considered as palliative therapy for symptom control in select patients with stage D HF despite optimal GDMT and device therapy who are not eligible for either MCS or cardiac transplantation. Long-term use of either continuous or intermittent, intravenous parenteral positive inotropic agents, in the absence of specific indications or for reasons other than palliative care, is potentially harmful in the patient with HF.
Use of parenteral inotropic agents in hospitalized patients without documented severe systolic dysfunction, low blood pressure, or impaired perfusion and evidence of significantly depressed cardiac output, with or without congestion, is potentially harmful. Despite improving hemodynamic compromise, positive inotropic agents have not demonstrated improved outcomes in patients with HF in either the hospital or outpatient setting.
Parenteral inotropes, however, remain as an option to help the subset of patients with HF who are refractory to other therapies and are suffering consequences from end-organ hypoperfusion. To minimize adverse effects, lower doses are preferred. Similarly, the ongoing need for inotropic support and the possibility of discontinuation should be regularly assessed. See Online Data Supplements 32 and 33 for additional data on inotropes. Since its initial use 50 years ago for postcardiotomy shock, the implantable VAD continues to evolve.
Designed to assist the native heart, VADs are differentiated by the implant location intracorporeal versus extracorporeal , approach percutaneous versus surgical , flow characteristic pulsatile versus continuous , pump mechanism volume displacement, axial, centrifugal , and the ventricle s supported left, right, biventricular. VADs are effective in both the short-term hours to days management of acute decompensated, hemodynamically unstable HF r EF that is refractory to inotropic support, and the long-term months to years management of stage D chronic HF r EF.
Nondurable or temporary, MCS provides an opportunity for decisions about the appropriateness of transition to definitive management such as cardiac surgery or durable, that is, permanent, MCS or, in the case of improvement and recovery, suitability for device removal. Nondurable MCS thereby may be helpful as either a bridge to decision or a bridge to recovery. More common scenarios for MCS, however, are long-term strategies, including 1 bridge to transplantation, 2 bridge to candidacy, and 3 destination therapy.
Bridge to transplant and destination therapy have the strongest evidence base with respect to survival, functional capacity, and HRQOL benefits. The greatest risk factors for death among patients undergoing bridge to transplant include acuity and severity of clinical condition and evidence of right ventricular failure. Other bridge-to-candidacy indications may include obesity and tobacco use in patients who are otherwise candidates for cardiac transplantation.
Current scientific and translational research in the area aims to identify clinical, cellular, molecular, and genomic markers of cardiac recovery in the patient with VAD. Evaluation for cardiac transplantation is indicated for carefully selected patients with stage D HF despite GDMT, device, and surgical management. Cardiac transplantation is considered the gold standard for the treatment of refractory end-stage HF. Since the first successful cardiac transplantation in , advances in immunosuppressive therapy have vastly improved the long-term survival of transplant recipients with a 1-, 3-, and 5-year posttransplant survival rate of Determination of HF prognosis is addressed in Sections 6.
The listing criteria and evaluation and management of patients undergoing cardiac transplantation are described in detail by the International Society for Heart and Lung Transplantation. See Table 27 for a summary of recommendations from this section, Figure 3 for the stages of HF development; and Online Data Supplement 36 for additional data on transplantation.
Stages in the development of HF and recommended therapy by stage. Adapted from Hunt et al. Hospitalization for HF is a growing and major public health issue. There is no widely accepted nomenclature for HF syndromes requiring hospitalization. Data from HF registries have clarified the profile of patients with HF requiring hospitalization. The overall morbidity and mortality for both groups is high. Hospitalized patients with HF can be classified into important subgroups. These include patients with acute coronary ischemia, accelerated hypertension and acutely decompensated HF, shock, and acutely worsening right HF.
Patients who develop HF decompensation after surgical procedures also bear mention. Each of these various categories of HF has specific etiologic factors leading to decompensation, presentation, management, and outcomes. Noninvasive modalities can be used to classify the patient with hospitalized HF.
Chest x-ray is variably sensitive for the presence of interstitial or alveolar edema, even in the presence of elevated filling pressures. Thus, a normal chest x-ray does not exclude acutely decompensated HF. Both BNP and NT-proBNP are useful for the identification or exclusion of acutely decompensated HF in dyspneic patients, , , , , particularly in the context of uncertain diagnosis. Figure 4. Classification of patients presenting with acutely decompensated heart failure. Adapted with permission from Nohria et al.
ACS precipitating acute HF decompensation should be promptly identified by ECG and serum biomarkers, including cardiac troponin testing, and treated optimally as appropriate to the overall condition and prognosis of the patient. Common precipitating factors for acute HF should be considered during initial evaluation, as recognition of these conditions is critical to guide appropriate therapy.
ACS is an important cause of worsening or new-onset HF. Complicating the clinical scenario is that many patients with acute HF, with or without CAD, have serum troponin levels that are elevated.
