Abstract

Progress in therapy, mainly in electrotherapy, has increased life expectancy in patients with heart failure (HF). Disease progression despite treatment leads to advanced HF, with pump failure as its dominant manifestation. This is related to increased rate of hospitalization for HF. Therefore, early introduction of appropriate therapy is necessary to reduce rehospitalization due to worsening of HF.
