Abstract

Background:This study aimed to investigate the effect and safety of sodium glucose cotransporter 2 inhibitors (SGLT2-Is) in patients with drug-refractory heart failure (HF).

Methods and Results:In 12 diabetic patients with advanced HF, SGLT2-Is were added to the treatment regimen. At 6 months after administration, improvements in New York Heart Association class and reduction in B-type natriuretic peptide levels were observed, in particular in patients with high right atrial pressure. During follow-up, they had neither cardiac events nor adverse side effects.

Conclusions:SGLT2-Is may be useful and safe in diabetic patients with drug-refractory HF, in particular accompanied by right-sided HF.
