The medical treatment of heart failure has been revolutionized by large randomized controlled clinical trials studying the effects of antagonists of the renin–angiotensin–aldosterone and sympathetic nervous systems. These drugs now form the cornerstones in the management of the condition, with recognized and proven reductions in morbidity and mortality.
