  • Model 1=adjusted for age, sex and clinically relevant factors (ischaemic aetiology, atrial fibrillation, QRS duration >150 ms, left ventricular end-systolic volume, left ventricular ejection fraction, moderate or severe MR, estimated glomerular filtration rate, statin use and acute decompensated heart failure at admission). Model 2=adjusted for VALID–cardiac resynchronisation therapy risk score. Model 3=adjusted for age, sex and liver function parameters (total bilirubin, aspartate aminotransferase, alanine aminotransferase, and γ-glutamyl transferase).
