Prior HF, diabetes, polyvascular disease raise risk for HF hospitalization

In patients with stable atherosclerotic CVD, those with prior HF were more than eight times more likely to be hospitalized for HF during follow-up, data show.
Also in that population, type 2 diabetes and polyvascular disease more than doubled the risk for HF hospitalization.
In an analysis of more than 26,000 adults participating in the TRA 2°P‐TIMI 50 trial, researchers also found that, at 3 years, outcomes among patients who experienced hospitalization for HF were poor; 30% required ICU admission and nearly 10% died.
