Committee member Professor Kenneth Dickstein, of Stavanger University Hospital, Norway, said: "These guidelines are truly realistic and clinically relevant to the real world and, most specifically, European populations.
"They are not in conflict with the previous guidelines, but are an updated and improved version of the former.Since the last guidelines were issued in 2001, there have been substantial developments in the area of heart failure overall."
A new chapter covers the diagnosis of heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (diastolic heart failure).
Professor Dickstein continues: "The whole approach has also become more multidisciplinary.

ESC releases new chronic heart failure guidelines, 19 May 2005 [cached]

"Although the study failed on two out of three counts , the observed improvements in post ischemic arm and leg blood flow make it highly unlikely such findings would have occurred purely by chance," says Professor Kenneth Dickstein, an ESC spokesperson. "The results are enough to pique real interest and suggest the approach has the potential to offer another string to our bow for improving heart failure symptoms."
It is also noteworthy, adds Dickstein from the University of Bergen (Stavanger University Hospital, Norway), that JACC felt the study to be of sufficient merit to commission an editorial┬▓.
Any future studies undertaken, says Dickstein, will need to involve larger cohorts of patients. "One big question for me is whether four weeks of treatment is sufficient to produce significant effects. This begs the question of whether higher doses and longer durations of treatment might have produced clearer cut answers," he adds.
It provides a biologically plausible hypothesis that's really easy for everyone to understand," says Dickstein.
