Left Ventricular Ejection Fraction Assessment in Older Adults: An Adjunct to Natriuretic Peptide Testing to Identify Risk of New-Onset Heart Failure and Cardiovascular Death?

Study Questions:

Does the assessment of left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) aid in heart failure (HF) and cardiovascular mortality risk assessment above that of N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) levels in older adults?
