In short, diuretics (and aldosterone antagonists) provide optimal relief of edema.
-- The latest heart failure guidelines from the American College of Cardiology/ American Heart Association place a new emphasis on aldosterone antagonists as a central aspect of the management of symptomatic or previously symptomatic heart failure with reduced ejection fraction--while underscoring important caveats to their use.
Their use in combination with an aldosterone antagonist such as spironolactone can decrease their hypofibrinolytic effects and metabolic side effects.
Assmann et al., "Regional variation in patients and outcomes in the treatment of preserved cardiac function heart failure with an aldosterone antagonist (TOPCAT) trial," Circulation, vol.
DALLAS -- Spironolactone did not hit a home run in the large international "treatment of preserved cardiac function heart failure with an aldosterone antagonist" (TOPCAT) trial, but it did knock out a solid single in the form of significantly reduced hospitalizations for this extremely common, chronic, high morbidity/mortality condition.
All patients were started on an aldosterone antagonist (spironolactone) on the same day as receiving their first dose of RLY5016.
Furthermore, reliable quantification of aldosterone is critical during subsequent suppression testing (in which the definitive confirmation or exclusion of primary aldosteronism depends on the measured aldosterone concentration) and adrenal venous sampling, the results of which largely determine whether a patient is a candidate for unilateral adrenalectomy, or alternatively, treatment with aldosterone antagonist medication (10).

In 2004, the Candesartan in Heart failure Assessment of Reduction in Mortality and morbidity trial (CHARM) (30) found that when the ARB candesartan (Atacand) was added to standard therapy (ACE inhibitor, beta-blockers, aldosterone antagonist) there was a 33% reduction in all-cause mortality, similar to that found with beta-blockers and ACE inhibitors) (LOE: 1).
