To assess the prognostic effect of preserved systolic function in patients with congestive heart failure (CHF), the authors analyzed survival curves in 91 nonselected adult patients with CHF. Patients were assigned to one of two groups on the basis of fractional shortening. The first group consisted of 44 patients with a normal fractional shortening (greater than 0.17), and the second group, of 47 patients with a fractional shortening of 0.17 or less. The two groups were similar in respect to… CONTINUE READING
