Heart Failure

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The burden of heart failure remains ever present with a long-standing, inexorable association with hypertension. Though advances in evidence-based medical therapy for heart failure have led to impressive reductions in morbidity and mortality, the residual burden of disease remains significant. Of all potential strategies that might reduce the incidence of heart failure, none appears to have a higher yield than the treatment of hypertension. Thus, a greater appreciation of the association of hypertension and heart failure is warranted.
