BACKGROUND Heart failure (HF) in older adults is often associated with preserved left ventricular systolic function (LVSF). The objective of this retrospective follow-up study was to determine the correlates and outcomes of preserved LVSF among older adults hospitalized with HF. METHODS We studied older Medicare beneficiaries hospitalized with HF (n = 1091) who had documented LVSF evaluation (n = 438). LVSF was defined as preserved if left ventricular ejection fraction was > or =40%. The… CONTINUE READING
