Abstract: BACKGROUND: The characteristics, in-hospital management, and outcomes of patients hospitalized with worsening heart failure (HF) have been described by large-scale registries performed mainly in the USA and Europe. However, little information is available in Japan. We thus clarified the characteristics and clinical status as well as in-hospital management and outcomes among patients hospitalized with worsening HF in Japan and compared them with those reported in previous studies. METHODS: The Japanese Cardiac Registry of Heart Failure in Cardiology (JCARE-CARD) studied prospectively the characteristics and treatments in patients hospitalized with worsening HF. From the total cohort of JCARE-CARD, 1677 patients were randomly selected and their detailed data during acute phase were collected as another registry database in the present study. The characteristics, in-hospital management, and outcomes were analyzed. RESULTS: The mean age was 70.7 years and 59.4% were male. Etiology was ischemic in 34.0% and mean left ventricular ejection fraction was 42.5%. Carperitide was highly used as in-hospital management in Japan (33.5%) compared to the use of nesiritide in the USA (8-11%). The use of angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors was lower and angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARB) were more commonly used in this study compared to other studies in the USA and Europe. In-hospital crude mortality rate was comparable among studies (4-8%), however, length of stay was longer in Japan (15-20 versus 4-9 days). CONCLUSIONS: The characteristics, clinical status, and laboratory data on admission in patients hospitalized with worsening HF were similar between the present study and previous Japanese and western studies. Management was also similar except for higher use of carperitide and ARB. The most striking difference between Japanese registries and those from the USA and Europe was the longer length of stay.
