MRAs significantly reduced mortality, hospitalizations in HF patients with low eGFR

Patients with heart failure (HF) whose estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) dropped below 30 mL/min/1.73 m2 after starting mineralocorticoid receptor antagonists (MRAs) had better outcomes than those on placebo, potentially justifying continuation of MRAs, a study found.

Meta-analysis compares mortality benefits of heart failure treatment combinations

Patients taking an angiotensin receptor-neprilysin inhibitor, beta-blocker, mineralocorticoid receptor antagonist, and sodium-glucose cotransporter-2 inhibitor showed the greatest reduction in risk of death, the analysis of heart failure with reduced ejection fraction found.
