Management of Heart Failure and the Use of Vericiguat

4 May 2023

Worsening Heart Failure (WHF) is a major public health concern, responsible for >26 million hospitalizations per year worldwide. Many trials have investigated new therapeutic options for WHF, with most revealing equivocal results. Successful innovations in treatment for WHF have remained limited, and standard of care has remained largely unchanged over the past decade.

Current treatment of WHF is mostly symptomatic, centred on decongestive drugs, at best tailored to the initial haemodynamic status with little regard to the underlying pathophysiological mechanism. Although short-term readmissions are due to haemodynamic congestion, long-term prognosis and mortality are the result of the continuous deterioration of cardiac substrate, worsening of comorbidities, and progression of heart failure.  Vericiguat, a soluble guanylate cyclase stimulator, targets an untapped pathway in this new high risk patient population of WHF to improve the cardiovascular outcomes.

After the lecture, the participants will be able to gain an understanding on:

  • Definition and epidemiology of worsening heart failure
  • Treatment options for worsening heart failure
  • Role of vericiguat in worsening heart failure
