Abstract

Heart failure due to isolated left ventricular diastolic dysfunction (LVDD) is common among older adults. The purpose of this study was to develop a model based on admission clinical features to predict isolated LVDD in older adults hospitalized with heart failure. The authors studied 394 Alabama Medicare beneficiaries discharged with a primary discharge diagnosis of heart failure. All patients had data on LV function determined by echocardiography performed during the index hospitalization. Isolated LVDD was defined by LV ejection fraction ≥ 45% or LV function described as normal. The authors used all subsets multiple logistic regression analyses to examine various models predicting isolated LVDD. Patients had a mean (±SD) age of 78 (±7) years and 58% were women. One hundred thirty nine (35%) patients had isolated LVDD. More women (47%) than men (21%) had isolated LVDD (p
