Characteristics of heart failure in Amsterdam

Published on 18 August 2023 at 21:50

Our team has just completed a study on incident heart failure in the Amsterdam metropolitan region, based on primary care data.

Our study highlights are the following:

  • The incidence of heart failure increases with age and is higher in men compared with women
  • While risk factors differ, no sex differences were found in symptoms prior to HF diagnosis
  • Survival rates at 10-year follow-up are poor, particularly in men
  • Patients in less affluent city districts have higher incidence rates, younger manifestations, and poor prognosis
