AIMS The purpose of this study was to evaluate the influence of left ventricular systolic function on the survival in a large consecutive cohort of patients hospitalized with congestive heart failure and to determine how left ventricular systolic function interacts with co-morbid conditions in terms of prognosis. METHODS AND RESULTS Analysis of survival data from 5491 patients admitted for new or worsening heart failure to 34 departments of cardiology or internal medicine in Denmark from 1993… CONTINUE READING
