OBJECTIVES: This study investigates the prevalence and prognostic significance of mitral regurgitation (MR) in acute decompensated heart failure (ADHF) patients.
BACKGROUND: Few studies characterize the burden of MR in heart failure.
METHODS: The ARIC (Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities) study surveilled ADHF hospitalizations for residents ≥55 years of age in 4 U.S. communities. ADHF cases were stratified by left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF):
RESULTS: From 2005 to 2014, there were 17,931 weighted ADHF hospitalizations of which 49.2% had an LVEF
CONCLUSIONS: Patients with ADHF have a significant MR burden that varies with sex and race. In ADHF patients with an LVEF
