Note, the live version of this session was CME accredited; this on-demand version is not.

This programme is supported by an unrestricted educational grant from AstraZeneca.

Learning Objectives

  • To explore the mechanisms of cardiorenal protection with SGLT2 inhibition
  • To examine how the safety-efficacy relationship of SGLT2 inhibitors vary with age, frailty, gender and race
  • To break down how SGLT2 inhibitors can be safely and optimally combined with other heart failure pharmacotherapies
  • To recognise the prognostic value of NT-proBNP in SGLT2 inhibition
  • To assess the merit of ejection fraction in heart failure care

Target Audience

  • Primary Care Physicians
  • Endocrinologists
  • Nephrologists
  • Cardiologists

Orly Vardeny

Orly Vardeny

Associate Professor of Medicine

Dr Orly Vardeny is Associate Professor of Medicine at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis. Her research interests include maximising the benefit of pharmacologic therapy in patients with heart failure and optimising vaccination strategies in patients with cardiac disorders. She has led several multi-center, randomized clinical trials evaluating influenza vaccines in patients with high-risk cardiovascular disease.

In addition, Dr Vardeny serves as the US national lead investigator and a steering committee member for numerous clinical trials investigating novel therapies in patients with heart failure. Her clinical practice is in the outpatient management of patients with chronic heart failure. She is an Associate Editor for Circulation: Heart Failure and was a writing group member for the 2022 American Heart Association/American College of Cardiology/Heart Failure Society of America Guidelines for the Management of Heart Failure.
