    ABSTRACT: Background: Congestive heart failure is the leading cause of hospitalization in the elderly. Little is known about gender effect on baseline characteristics and in-hospital outcome in patients admitted with acute heart failure. Our purpose was to study the gender effect on in-hospital mortality in acute heart failure patients. Methods and Results: A prospective study [143 patients, 67 men (73.9 ± 13.8 years old) and 76 women (77.8 ± 10.1 years old) (p = 0.059)] followed in-hospital outcome of patients with acute heart failure admitted to the hospital.

Women were shorter (p
