Practice-changing research in cardiology

New research, presented at a major cardiology congress, is set to inform best practice in cardiovascular care, with the aim of improving outcomes and reducing mortality. The Clinical Services Journal highlights some key findings.

Practice-changing research was presented including new findings from major studies. Among these included the findings from STEPHFpEF, the first trial of a pharmacologic agent to specifically target obesity as a treatment strategy for heart failure with preserved ejection fraction. The study indicated that obesity is a target for therapeutic intervention in this vulnerable patient group

The results of this major trial suggest that ECG documentation of atrial fibrillation is needed before starting oral anticoagulation in patients with AHRE
