This Year’s Spotlight: Heart Failure

 Session-energyline-ESCCongress-1500x1000.jpgHeart failure is relevant to all areas of cardiology and beyond, including obesity, diabetes and chronic kidney disease, which is why it makes such a relevant spotlight for ESC Congress 2023.

Many of the problems cardiovascular diseases professionals face are the results of heart failure or complication of heart failure including coronary artery disease, valvular problems, stroke, arrhythmias and sudden death.

Late-Breaking Science Unveiled
