Broadcasting from ACC 2024: Empagliflozin Misses Primary Endpoint in Post-MI Patient Population, EMPACT-MI Trial

Use of empagliflozin did not lead to a significant reduction in the composite of hospitalizations for heart failure or all-cause mortality in patients at increased risk for heart failure after acute myocardial infarction, according to results of the EMPACT-MI trial.

Presented at the American College of Cardiology 2024 (ACC.24) Annual Scientific Session, results of the trial, which come less than 6 months after results of DAPA-MI were presented at the American Heart Association 2023 Scientific Sessions, detail a nonsignificant trend toward benefit with use of empagliflozin among this patient population driven by reductions in heart failure hospitalizations.
