Whereas cardiac cachexia is well recognized, the frequency and hemodynamic correlates of malnutrition in severe congestive heart failure (CHF) have not been established. Anthropometric and serum albumin assessment of nutritional status was compared with hemodynamic, echocardiographic and serum chemistry evaluation in 48 patients with severe CHF (ejection fraction 0.17 +/- 0.05). Malnutrition, as defined by decreases in percent body fat determined from skinfold thicknesses, weight/height index… CONTINUE READING
