Heart failure patients aged 54 and younger saw the least improvement in outcomes in terms of hospitalizations, length of hospital stay and mortality rate within 30 days of admission between 2001 and 2009, a U.S. study showed. During the study period, heart failure-related hospitalizations dropped about 37% for adults aged 65 and older, compared to 13% for adults ages 18 to 44 and 16% for patients between 45 and 55. The findings appear in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.
