BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical characteristics, 1-year prognosis and therapeutic approach of heart failure with a preserved left ventricular systolic function in a large multicenter registry of patients referred to specialized heart failure clinics. METHODS The study population consisted of 5164 outpatients (mean age 62 +/- 12 years, 78.8% male, 28.1% in NYHA functional class III-IV) with an available left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) measurement at the… CONTINUE READING
