  • Overview

    Experts agree intravenous iron treatment for iron-deficient patients with heart failure can improve outcomes, but what are we learning from the recent clinical trials? Drs. Giuseppe Rosano, Marco Metra, Ovidiu Chioncel, and Antoni Bayés-Genís highlight the latest data as they discuss the recent updates to the ESC guidelines and provide expert analysis regarding clinical trials using IV iron. Discover the clinical relevance of the evidence from these trials in patients with heart failure and iron deficiency.

  • Learning Objectives

    After participating in this educational activity, participants should be better able to:

    • Review the latest guideline updates on IV iron presented at ESC 2023 (updated IV iron guidelines, Heart-FID)
    • Assess the clinical relevance of the HEART-FID trial despite missing the prespecified P value set by regulators
    • Evaluate the totality of evidence of IV iron trials with ferric carboxymaltose, including the clinical evidence vs newly released data in treating heart failure patients
  • Target Audience

    This activity is designed to meet the educational needs of cardiologists, primary care physicians, nephrologists, and all other HCPs involved in the identification and treatment of patients with heart failure.
