Dapagliflozin in Patients Recently Hospitalized With Heart Failure and Mildly Reduced or Preserved Ejection Fraction

J Am Coll Cardiol. 2022; online ahead of print DOI: 10.1016/j.jacc.2022.07.021

This prespecified analysis of the DELIVER trial found that dapagliflozin had beneficial effects on cardiovascular (CV) outcomes in patients with heart failure (HF) with mildly reduced or preserved left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) who were enrolled during or following hospitalisation.

Iron Deficiency in Heart Failure and Effect of Dapagliflozin: Findings From DAPA-HF

Circulation 2022; online ahead of print DOI: 10.1161/CIRCULATIONAHA.122.060511

In this post hoc analysis of DAPA-HF, 43.7% of participants had iron deficiency at baseline, which was associated with worse outcomes. Dapagliflozin appeared to increase iron use but improved outcomes, irrespective of iron status at baseline.

Initial Decline (“Dip”) in Estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate Following Initiation of Dapagliflozin in Patients With Heart Failure and Reduced Ejection Fraction: Insights From DAPA-HF

Circulation 2022; Online ahead of print doi: 10.1161/CIRCULATIONAHA.121.058910

The results of this subgroup analysis from DAPA-HF show that – although estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) decline is generally associated with poorer prognosis in most situations – an initial dip with a sodium-glucose co-transporter-2 inhibitor (SGLT2i) may be associated with slower rate of decline in kidney function.

Effects of Empagliflozin on Symptoms, Physical Limitations and Quality of Life in Patients Hospitalized for Acute Heart Failure – Results From the EMPULSE Trial

Circulation 2022; online ahead of print doi:10.1161/CIRCULATIONAHA.122.059725

This post hoc and prespecified analysis of the EMPULSE trial found that initiation of empagliflozin in patients hospitalised for acute heart failure (AHF) produced clinical benefit regardless of the degree of symptomatic impairment at baseline. Empagliflozin also improved symptoms, physical limitations, and quality of life – with benefits seen as early as 15 days and maintained through 90 days.

Dapagliflozin and New-Onset Type 2 Diabetes in Patients With Chronic Kidney Disease Or Heart Failure: Pooled Analysis of the DAPA-CKD and DAPA-HF Trials

Lancet Diabetes Endocrinol 2022;10:24–34 doi.org/10.1016/

Chronic kidney disease and heart failure are insulin resistant states associated with high incidence rates of diabetes. Rossing et al. carried out a two Phase 3, randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled trials assessed the effect of dapagliflozin on new-onset type 2 diabetes, in a pooled analysis of data from 6,608 individuals.
