BACKGROUND The prognosis of chronic heart failure has been studied extensively, but factors predicting short-term outcome in patients with severe chronic heart failure are still poorly defined, and the current indications for heart transplantation as a treatment for end-stage heart failure need on objective analysis. METHODS Purpose of the study was to identify the determinants of short-term prognosis in a group of 142 consecutive ambulatory patients (mean age 49.8 +/- 11 years). Referred for… CONTINUE READING
