OBJECTIVES This study was undertaken to determine which exercise and radionuclide ventriculographic variables predict prognosis in advanced heart failure. BACKGROUND Although cardiopulmonary exercise testing is frequently used to predict prognosis in patients with advanced heart failure, little is known about the prognostic significance of ventriculographic variables. METHODS The results of maximal symptom-limited cardiopulmonary exercise testing and first-pass radionuclide ventriculography… CONTINUE READING
