Raymondi DM, Velasco A, Cordero A, Mejía S, Alegría E. Utilidad de los Beta-bloqueantes en el tratamiento de la insuficiencia cardiaca crónica Rev Med Univ Navarra. 2003 Apr-Jun;47(2):18-22.
Heart failure has become a major public health problem. About 2-3% of people over 65 years suffer from Heart Failure. A huge amount of money is spent every year treating problems connected with this syndrome. In this paper we analyse randomised prospective trials which support the use of beta-blockers in these patients. We also analyse the benefits of this treatment and some special considerations concerning the use of these drugs.
