Medical and psychosocial factors are related to 1-year outcomes in the Waiting for a New Heart Study. With increased use of mechanical circulatory support devices (MCSD) over the course of the study, this study evaluated variables as predictors of MCSD in an extended follow-up.Variables assessed at time of listing included psychosocial risk (depression, social isolation), […]

In an era of reduced donor organ availability, adjunctive tools in predicting survival of heart failure patients and avoidance of listing for patients who will do well without a transplant are useful. Low risk scores on both the HFSS and SHFM provide additional reassurance that deferring transplantation is safe. This strategy may be most useful […]
