Early improvement in serial echocardiographic studies in heart failure patients predicts long term survival-a pilot study.


BACKGROUND Several echocardiographic measures have prognostic value in heart failure (HF). However, no definitive data exist on how changes in these parameters with treatment affect survival in this patient population. We hypothesized that early improvement on echocardiography could predict long-term survival. METHODS AND RESULTS We conducted a… (More)
