Effect of age on outcome on patients hospitalized with heart failure: from a 20-year registry in a middle-eastern country (1991–2010)
Congestive Heart Failure, 05/08/2012
Al Suwaidi J et al. – The clinical characteristics of Middle–Eastern HF patients vary considerably according to age. Over time, an overall marked improvement in hospital survival for HF was observed, which was associated with progressively increased treatment with evidence–based therapies. This survival improvement over time appears to be less pronounced in the elderly.
