The 16th Annual Meeting Success With Failure: New Strategies for the Evaluation and Treatment of Congestive Heart Failure will feature up-to-date presentations on the evaluation and treatment of congestive heart failure. New diagnostic tools, drugs, and devices will be reviewed along with their role in specific clinical situations. Integration of guidelines and clinical management will be highlighted. The program format includes interactive case-based discussions, surgical and medical perspectives, debates, and small group sessions to ensure a lively and relevant educational opportunity for all participants.

early bird case presentations
• focus on heart failure with preserved EF
• expanding the role of various device therapies
• approach to diuretic resistant CHF patients
• update in practice guidelines and performance measures
• review contrasting medical and surgical perspectives

COURSE LEARNING OBJECTIVES
Upon conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:
• identify relevant features of national heart failure guidelines;
• analyze new treatments for heart failure including devices;
• describe the opportunities of palliative specialist for heart failure patients; and
• characterize the timing and expected outcome for surgical interventions in heart failure patients including those with ischemic heart disease and valvular heart disease.
Attendance at this Mayo course does not indicate nor guarantee competence or proficiency in the performance of any procedures which may be discussed or taught in this course.
