Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The prevalence of and mortality from congestive heart failure increase with advancing age. The most important prognostic indicators are exercise tolerance and left ventricular function. Currently, drug treatment consists of digitalis, diuretics, and ACe inhibitors. Future management may include medications to modulate the extracardiac mechanisms of decompensation and newer surgical techniques to assist or replace the failing heart.
