Study Compares Women And Men With Chronic Heart Failure
A new study has found women with chronic heart failure survive longer than men with the same condition.
Researchers looked at 40-thousand patients for three years. They found men had a 31% higher risk of death than women.
Heart failure occurs when a damaged heart fails to pump sufficient blood to the body. Researchers say it seems the female heart is better able to repair itself from damage compared to a male heart.
