Conclusion

The lifetime risks for HFpEF and HFrEF vary by gender, race, and history of antecedent MI: men have a higher risk of HFrEF compared with women, non-blacks have a higher risk of HFpEF compared with blacks, and MI patients have a higher risk of both HFpEF and HFrEF compared with individuals without MI. These findings may be helpful to develop more individualized prevention strategies.
