Abstract

Nowadays heart failure (HF) presents are enormous and rapidly growing public health problem. HF is characterized by high morbidity and mortality and high costs. The analysis included 100 consecutives discharge records patients with HF, treated in Cardiology Ward during the first quarter of 2015. The mean age of the whole investigated population was 73 years (63% males). The most prevalent concomitant diseases were: arterial hypertension (58%), coronary artery disease (46%), the presence at least the moderate insufficiency of the mitral or aortic valve (34%), atrial fibrillation (38%), diabetes mellitus (29%). Data from hospitalized HF registries are useful to better understand the clinical characteristics, patient management and outcomes after discharge.
