Heart failure, post-hospital mortality and renal function in Tanzania: A prospective cohort study
Nitric Oxide Synthase Type II
Over half of adults discharged with HF died within 12months after discharge. Adults with HF had higher post-hospital mortality compared to other medical inpatients. Markers of renal disease were the strongest predictor of this mortality. Innovative interventions are needed to reduce post-hospital mortality in adults with HF and should focus on those with renal disease.
