Effects of Canagliflozin on Heart Failure Outcomes Associated with Preserved and Reduced Ejection Fraction in Type 2 Diabetes: Results from the CANVAS Program

Abstract

Patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus are at high risk of developing heart failure (HF).1 Sodium glucose co-transporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors have been demonstrated, in large scale trials, to reduce the risk of HF events in patients with type 2 diabetes deemed to be at high risk based on established cardiovascular disease or multiple risk factors.2-4 However, it is unclear whether benefits are experienced across the broad spectrum of HF patients that includes those with preserved (HFpEF) as well as reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF).
