Abstract

Anemia in heart failure is both common and associated with worse symptoms and increased mortality. Several small randomized controlled trials (RCTs) have assessed erythropoiesis-stimulating agents (ESAs), but definitive evaluation and clinical guidance are required. We sought to systematically review the effects of ESAs in chronic heart failure.
