Heart failure is one of the most common cardiovascular disorders in westem countries. Because (congestive) heart failure is a chronic, incapacitating disease with a poor prognosis and a substantial public health impact, the attention paid to this disorder in research and both scientific as well as popular publications is fully justified. In addition, the incidence and prevalence of heart failure tend to increase, in particular because of ageing of the population and increased survival after acute myocardial infarction.
