For all, angiotensin-converting-enzyme inhibitors and beta blockers are the essential disease-modifying treatments, improving symptoms, reducing hospital admissions, and increasing survival. Implantable cardioverter defibrillators also improve survival. For patients with persistent symptoms, angiotensin-receptor blockers and… CONTINUE READING
