Mechanisms and management of heart failure : implications of clinical trials for clinical practice. Symposium. , 1992/04/27.
A total of 6,173 consecutive relatively unselected patients with heart failure or left ventricular dysfunction, or both (mean age 62+-12 gears, mean ejection fraction 31+-9%), were enrolled in the Studies of Left Ventricular Dysfunction (SOLVI)) Registry over a period of 14 months.
All patients were followed up for vital status and hospital admissions at 1 year.
Ischemic heart disease was the underlying cause of failure or dysfunction in ~70% of patients, whereas hypertensive heart disease was considered to be primarily involved in only 7%. There were striking differences in the etiology of heart failure among blacks and whites: 73% of whites had an ischemic etiology of failure versus only 36% of black; 32% of blacks had a hypertensive condition versus only 4% of whites.
