Main results


In the Swedish Heart Failure Registry, HFmrEF resembled HFrEF rather than HFpEF, with respect to IHD as underlying cause and HFmrEF and HFrEF had an elevated risk of ischemic events compared with HFpEF. Established IHD had an adverse impact on most of study outcomes in all HF categories, although most prominent for new IHD events and in HFrEF. These findings are of importance to future research strategies on prevention and treatment of different HF types and IHD.
