The main etiologic factors of chronic heart failure in 79.9% of cases are ischemic heart disease and hypertension. Revealed significant differences in the etiology of heart failure in men and women, as well as in patients of all ages. The prevalence of heart failure in men was 56.8% in men with CHF recorded 1.3 times more likely than women; 41% of patients with CHF were older than 60 years. CHF with left ventricular ejection fraction <45% was diagnosed in 84% of patients. It should be noted that, among patients with CHF with preserved left ventricular ejection fraction, the number of women with CHF increases to 22%, and it is higher than in men in 2 times.
