Heart failure is expected to become the new epidemic of the 21st century and one of the leading causes of hospitalization in patients over 65 years of age. Heart failure patients need well-trained cardiologists, highly competent in clinical medicine and pharmacotherapy, profoundly knowledgeable about care, invasive procedures and treatment of heart failure.
