The aim of this study was to define the occurrence of hypothyroidism and its impact on CHF progression. Four hundred and twenty-two consecutive outpatients (326 males, aged 65±12 years) with CHF in stable condition and conventional therapy were evaluated. Thyroid status was checked at least every 4 months. The progression of heart failure was defined as death, urgent heart transplantation, or hospitalisation due to worsening HF.<img src="/ea/0026/ima...

Background: It has been previously demonstrated that thyroid hormone deficiency is associated with a worse outcome in patients affected by chronic heart failure (CHF). However, few data are available about the effects of thyroid replacement therapy on the prognosis of patients.Aim of the study: The aim of the study was to evaluate the relationship among thyroid replacement therapy, correction of thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) serum levels and outcome ...
