AIMS Endothelial function is impaired in advanced chronic heart failure (ACHF) patients. We explored a possible association between endothelial function and subsequent mortality risk in ACHF. METHODS AND RESULTS We prospectively assessed brachial flow-mediated dilation (FMD) in 82 consecutive New York Heart Association class IV ischaemic ACHF patients… CONTINUE READING
