BACKGROUND: The gender differences in patients with chronic heart failure(CHF) remain to be elucidated in Japan. We examined gender differences in patients registered in the CHART-2 study.

METHODS AND RESULTS: Compared with male patients, females were older and had lower prevalence of ischemic heart disease. Women had higher prevalence of preserved ejection fraction but had higher NYHA class and BNP levels. Women were treated with 2-blockers and statins less frequently, but treated with diuretics were more frequently. Although crude mortality rate was similar between the genders, women more frequently died due to cardiovascular causes than males.

CONCLUSIONS: Female patients with CHF had severer clinical backgrounds and had higher cardiovascular mortality than males in the daily practice of Japan.
