Abstract

As current data suggest, beta-blockers improve ventricular function and reduce neurohormonal activation in heart failure. beta-blockers should be considered as adjunctive therapy in patients with congestive heart failure. In addition, future studies are warranted to better elucidate their effects on ventricular function and survival.
