The mean heart rate in these patients was 71 bpm and half of the patients had a heart rate more than 70 bpm.

Ivabradine blocks the hyperpolarization-activated cyclic nucleotide-gated channel responsible for the cardiac pacemaker I f current, which regulates heart rate.

Sign in to My ESC. Hence the results of BEAUTIFUL constitute a step further in the management of these coronary patients with heart rate above 70 bpm because, for the first time it has been shown that pure heart rate reduction with ivabradine further reduces coronary events even in patients receiving the current optimal cardiovascular therapy. The primary endpoint was a composite of cardiovascular death, admission to hospital for acute myocardial infarction, and admission to hospital for new onset or worsening heart failure.

Ivabradine specifically inhibits the I f current in the sinoatrial node to lower heart rate, without affecting other aspects of cardiac function. This entry form currently does not support special characters.

With the BEAUTIFUL results, ivabradine tial the first antianginal treatment shown to reduce myocardial infarction and revascularisation and to have a good tria profile even when used with other drugs.

With the BEAUTIFUL Results, Procoralan* (ivabradine) is the First Antianginal Tr

Ivabradine reduced heart rate by 6 trlal SE 0. The primary outcome was time to first cardiovascular death, admission to the hospital for acute MI, and admission to the hospital for new onset or worsening heart failure.

You expect to receive, or in the past 4 years have received, shared grant support or other funding with any of the authors. Ivabradine specifically inhibits the I f current in the sinoatrial node to lower heart rate, without affecting other aspects of cardiac function. Teial, there was no statistically significant difference in the primary outcome of all-cause or cardiovascular mortality.

Reduction in heart rate with ivabradine does not improve cardiac outcomes in all patients with stable coronary artery disease and left-ventricular systolic dysfunction, but could be used to reduce the incidence of coronary artery disease outcomes in a subgroup of patients who have heart rates of 70 bpm or greater. To reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease. However, it did reduce secondary endpoints: We aimed to test whether lowering the heart rate with ivabradine reduces cardiovascular death and morbidity in patients with coronary artery disease and left-ventricular systolic dysfunction.

Adjust the dose as needed based on resting heart rate and tolerability.

Between December,and December,we screened 12 patients at centres in 33 countries. Disclosures Policy Provide sufficient details of any financial or non-financial competing interests to enable users to assess whether your comments might lead a reasonable person to question your impartiality.

Alternative approaches To date, there are no well-established, head-to-head studies comparing ivabradine with other rate-lowering medications used in heart failure, such as digoxin.


In a prespecified subgroup of patients with heart rate of 70 bpm or greater, ivabradine treatment did not affect the primary composite outcome hazard ratio 0. Munich, Germany, 31 August, ESC sub specialties communities. Recommended dose adjustment according to heart rate In patients with a history of conduction defects, or other patients in whom bradycardia beautiul lead to hemodynamic compromise, initiate therapy at 2. In the overall study population treatment with ivabradine tril not result in a significant reduction of the primary composite end point Cardiovascular death, admission to hospital for acute MI and admission to hospital for heart failure.

Neither of the above.

To date, there are no well-established, head-to-head studies comparing ivabradine with other rate-lowering medications used in heart failure, such as digoxin. No sponsor or advertiser has participated in, approved or paid for the content provided by Decision Support in Medicine LLC.

Patients assigned to ivabradine were started on 5 mg twice daily and the dose was modified according to the heart rate, which was assessed in 2 weeks.

This Agreement shall begin on the date hereof. There are no other medications within this class. Patients may take ivabradine in combination with standard therapy, including beta blockers, or when beta blocker therapy is contraindicated or bwautiful tolerated. You work at the same institute as any of the authors.


Consider the following examples, but note that this is not an exhaustive list: The results of the much awaited BEAUTIFUL morBidity-mortality EvAlUaTion of the If inhibitor ivabradine in patients with CAD and left ventricULar dysfunction trial have shown that coronary artery disease CAD patients with left ventricular dysfunction LVD and a heart rate more than 70 bpm have a significantly higher risk of cardiovascular death and other cardiovascular events and in these patients heart rate above 70 bpm treatment with ivabradine further reduces the risk of the most important coronary events such as fatal and non-fatal myocardial infarction and coronary revascularisation by one third, even when these patients are already receiving optimal therapy.

Given that the number of open channels directly correlates with heart rate, the actions of ivabradine are considered “rate-dependent” and the pharmacological reduction of heart rate is a function of heart rate at baseline. User comments must be in English, comprehensible and relevant to the article under discussion. The primary composite endpoint was death from cardiovascular causes or non-fatal MI.
