Relation of anemia to diastolic heart failure and the effect on outcome.
Journal Article (Journal Article)
We evaluated the frequency and importance of anemia in 137 patients with heart failure and a normal ejection fraction (diastolic heart failure). We found that anemia is common in these patients and is associated with greater elevations in serum B-type natriuretic peptide, more severe diastolic dysfunction, and a worse prognosis.
