Genetic Predictive Scores in Heart Failure: Possibilities and Expectations

Alexander E Berezin

Heart failure (HF) remains a major health problem worldwide. Currently used HF risk prediction scores based on clinical findings, echocardiography features, biomarkers cannot propose an individualized approach to risk stratification, whereas there is variability in predictive value of different scores amongst patients with various HF phenotypes. The editorial commentary is devoted the role of the genetic risk prediction scores in the predisposition of HF development and assay in the HF medical care response. The brand new risk scores reflecting variabilities in genetic and epigenetic features in HF development are discussed also
