• Impact of vascular biology in treatment of cardiovascular disease
Section III: Neurohormonal strategies in the failing heart
The VBWG Core Curriculum 2003 slide lecture compendium Impact of vascular biology in treatment of cardiovascular disease
, provides updates on new science and mechanisms of disease, plus implications of recent clinical trials.
Areas of focus:
The material in this section of the slide/lecture program discusses new approaches to the treatment of heart failure with a focus on the following areas:
- The neurohormonal model of vascular dysfunction in heart failure and implications for treatment
- Reassessing management of heart failure based on recent clinical trials
- Confronting misconceptions about ß-blockers and expanding opportunities for CV protection with neurohormonal blockade.
