Heart failure in 2010: one step forward, two steps back.

Patients with heart failure (HF) fall into two categories—those who are stable and ambulatory with a relatively low event rate, and patients requiring hospitalization who are characterized by high post-discharge mortality and rates of rehospitalization. HF trials in 2010 contributed to the advancement of outpatient management, whereas the development of novel therapies with a survival benefit remains an unmet need in acute HF syndromes.
