In brief: Yes
Survival as a measure by itself and event-free, meaningful survival as a whole have improved through research and evidence-based practice of cardiology.
Over the past 10 years or so, our better understanding of the disease, better medication regimen, and device therapy have made patient's survival longer and their quality of life better.
