Abstract

Background and aim: Mitral regurgitation (MR) has been demonstrated to be a powerful predictor of adverse outcome in middle-aged patients with chronic heart failure (CHF). In this study, we sought to define the prognostic impact of functional mitral regurgitation in a population of elderly patients with systolic CHF. Methods: One hundred seventy-five outpatients aged >70 years with validated CHF and left ventricular ejection fraction
