World of Difference

Heart failure patients in Africa, China, India, the Middle East, southeast Asia and South America tend to be younger than patients in North American and Western European Nations and are more likely to be female.
 
The recent findings in the International Congestive Heart Failure (INTER-CHF) study also determined that cardiovascular death rates are significantly higher in these regions.
 
In an accompanying commentary in The Lancet Global Health, Aldo Maggioni says the drastic differences in clinical characteristics strongly suggest that clinicians in different parts of the world need different treatment approaches.
