Dr Ayis publishes in BMJ Heart

UMS member, Dr Salma Ayis along with colleagues at Kings College Hospital, Imperial College and Kings College London have recently published a study in BMJ Heart titled: ‘Drug treatment effects on outcomes in heart failure with preserved ejection fraction: a systematic review and meta-analysis’

The systematic review and meta-analysis investigated pharmacological treatments in patients with heart failure with left ventricular ejection fraction. The research concluded that ‘the efficacy of treatments in patients with heart failure and an LV ejection fraction ≥40% differ depending on the type of therapy, with beta-blockers demonstrating reductions in all-cause and cardiovascular mortality’.
