ACCEL Lite: Revascularization for Heart Failure

In patients with heart failure, viability tests (special heart scans) allow clinicians to distinguish permanently damaged (scarred) parts of the heart from those that may be hibernating and could recover function. Following decades of use based on this theory, the utility of viability tests at predicting prognosis and recovery of heart function has been scientifically tested in the REVIVED Viability study, the results of which could dramatically change the way heart failure patients are assessed and managed.

In this interview, Divaka Perera MD, FRCP, and Matt Cavender MD, MPH, FACC discuss Revascularization for Heart Failure.
