abstract

  • Stroke is an important complication among persons with HF. Variability among reported stroke rates can be explained in part by differences in study design, patient population, and HF standards of care at the time of the study. Despite the heterogeneity in reported stroke rates, this meta-analysis shows that stroke prevention in HF represents an opportunity to prevent morbidity and save many lives in this highly fatal disease.
