HFA 2020: Prospective analysis of DAPA-HF — Dr Kieran Docherty

 
Dr Kieran Docherty (University of Glasgow, Glasgow, UK) discusses the results of the DAPA-HF trial.
 
In the DAPA-HF trial, the SGLT2 inhibitor, dapagliflozin reduced the risk of worsening heart failure (HF) and death in patients with HF and reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF). Its use was examined to assess if the benefit was consistent in relation to background HF therapy.
