Women with left ventricular ejection fraction < or = 20% have better prognosis than men.

Abstract

Women with advanced heart failure have better prognosis than men (men versus women HR 2.5, 95% CI 1.1-5.5, p=0.03). Although interaction ischemic heart disease-gender was not significant, HR was 1.6 (95% CI 0.5-5.6, p=0.43) for patients with coronary artery disease and 3.4 (95% CI 1.1-10.5, p=0.03) for patients without.
