ABSTRACT
The article discusses the application of Doppler echocardiography for the stratification of patients with chronic heart failure (CHF). Accurate risk stratification is crucial both for prognosis and for the appropriate allocation of resources for heart transplantation. Many clinical indices have been used to estimate the severity of CHF, but all have limitations on account of the heterogeneity and complexity of the syndrome.
