The goals of this activity are to improve the prevention and diagnosis of cardiovascular disease, as well as the management of patients with cardiovascular disease. After completing the activity, the clinician will be better able to: 1.Discuss possible reasons why it has been difficult to find effective therapies for heart failure (HF) with preserved ejection fraction and list promising approaches being studied. 2.Summarize the effects seen with mechanical circulatory support as destination therapy in patients with advanced HF. 3.List some of the changes seen in the 2015 Core Cardiovascular Training Statement (COCATS 4) compared to earlier iterations of the document. 4.Compare and contrast the recently reported results of trials evaluating biodegradable/bioresorbable polymer stents versus second-generation drug-eluting stents and bare-metal stents.
