Özet

Objective: The prevalence of chronic heart failure (CHF) in the elderly population is growing. Identification of risk factors in patients with CHF is important. Recent studies suggest that red cell distribution width (RDW) has prognostic significance in these patients. We aimed to evaluate the relationship of RDW with clinical and laboratory parameters in patients with young and elderly CHF patients.
