Prior HF Hospitalization & Long-Term Mortality

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on LinkedIn

In patients with heart failure (HF) who are otherwise considered low risk, a history of at least two HF-related hospitalizations in the previous year appears to markedly increase 1-year mortality risk, according to University of Michigan investigators. No consistent relationship was observed between prior HF-related hospitalization and 1-year mortality in moderate- or high-risk patients.
