The Department of Cardiology, Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences, organized “Amrita Heart Failure Update” – a practical guide to the management of heart failure on July 22, 2018. The one-day meet saw the participation of cardiologists from India and abroad on the management of heart failure. During the event, the doctors stated how diabetes contributes to rising incidence of heart failure. Though no precise data on the incidence of heart failure exists in Kerala, statistics from the Trivandrum Heart Failure Registry show that the state has a much younger demographic profile – at least 12 years younger – suffering from heart failure compared to Western nations like the US. Coronary artery diseases are the most common cause of heart failure, accounting for 71% of all cases.
