Anaemia is an independent predictor of mortality in patients with left ventricular systolic dysfunction following acute myocardial infarction

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

BACKGROUND: In patients with chronic heart failure (HF), mortality is inversely related to haemoglobin (hgb) concentration. We investigated the prognostic importance of anaemia in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and left ventricular systolic dysfunction (LVSD) with and without HF. METHODS AND RESULTS: We studied 1731 patients with AMI and left ventricular ejection fraction
