Redefining Heart Failure With a Reduced Ejection Fraction

20:00 EDT 12 Sep 2019 | JAMA

In this Viewpoint, Milton Packer and colleagues argue that reliance on a threshold of LVEF ≤40% to define heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF) may exclude patients with impaired systolic function and subnormal LVEF from evidence-based treatments that reduce morbidity and mortality, and the authors propose that the LVEF threshold for HFrEF treatment be increased to ≤50%.
