Chronic heart failure is a growing health problem in industrialized countries and is sometimes even referred to as an epidemic. As the incidence of CHF is age-dependent its prevalence will only increase with the increasing average population age. In the Netherlands alone more than 200,000 people are suffering from heart problems and each year 50,000 new patients are being diagnosed. The mortality rate is high and patients experience many adverse effects both from the disease and the treatment. We are therefore carrying out studies to evaluate and improve disease management of heart failure.
