The authors discuss the treatment of chronic heart failure (CHF) and present the results of our own study on the use of dapagliflozin in combination with standard therapy in patients with CHF. The comparison group consisted of patients receiving standard therapy with angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors/angiotensin receptor blockers, β-adrenoblockers and mineralocorticoid receptor antagonists.
