POST MI HEART FAILURE
- In this presentation Dr. Rajeev Garg, a senior Interventional Cardiologist in Aware Gleneagles Global Hospitals at Hyderabad, discusses on the topic Post-Myocardial Infarction (MI) Heart Failure (HF), the established classification of heart failure which are categorized as: on the basis of LVEF, on the basis of time course, and on the basis of severity of symptom.
- As recognized by both the European Society of Cardiology and the American Heart Association, HF prevention is an urgent public health need. The population of patients after Mirepresent a high-risk group for HF development, in which HF screening and prevention is of particular importance. Missed or delayed diagnosis of HF compromises patient prognosis and increases therapy costs. This underscores the need for close follow-up of MI patients at risk for HF development, which has been shown to result in improved patient adherence, higher prescription of recommended therapy, and lower cardiovascular hospitalizations. Time-dependent therapies for post-myocardial infarction HF are crucial as the time required is proportional to the expected benefit for patient with MI.
