The world's largest heart failure congress -- Heart Failure Congress 2012
Date:3/20/2012

Sophia Antipolis, 20 March 2012: Four days of scientific sessions will be devoted to the latest advances and controversies in heart failure at this year's Heart Failure Congress 2012. The latest results from drugs and devices trials will be announced at the meeting.

Devices are one of the hottest topics in heart failure today and are the subject of this year's main theme, "Treatment of heart failure: integrating pharmacology and technology". Traditionally, heart failure has been treated with drugs and weight control, but the advent of novel devices including implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs), cardiac resynchronisation therapy (CRT), left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) and telemedicine has revolutionised the field. "Pharmacology remains a fundamental part of management but extending it to include diagnostic technology, monitoring technology, and devices for treatment and management is of key importance," says Professor Piotr Ponikowski, President of the Heart Failure Association (HFA) of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC).

Heart failure specialists and the media will also discuss emerging developments in the field including the new class of angiotensin receptor neprilysin inhibitors (ARNIs). Twenty-five years after the landmark CONSENSUS trial showed for the first time that ACE inhibitors prolong life in patients with heart failure, this session will tackle the question, "Are ACE inhibitors still the gold standard?".

Late-breaking abstracts are always popular and a great way to get news stories. This year they will be presented in three areas: clinical trials, basic and translational research, and clinical research. Journalists can expect new data on emerging mechanisms and therapies, and the latest results from drug trials and device trials. Abstracts are being submitted until 4 April to ensure that the congress gets a pick of the best and most up-to-date research.

New this year are two rapid fire sessi
