Abstract

A 56 year-old man with severe left ventricular dysfunction was admitted due to exacerbation of chronic heart failure with reduced left ventricular ejection fraction. During hospitalisation, standard heart failure treatment was used, but with a modification of pharmacotherapy to address concurrent conditions including diabetes. Here we discuss this case and the current state of knowledge regarding the beneficial effects of empagliflozin.
