Abstract

Aims: To characterize contemporary Eisenmenger patients at a large centre for adult congenital heart disease, assess survival prospects, and identify predictors of death in this population. Methods and results: All Eisenmenger patients under follow-up at our centre since 2000 (n=171, mean age 37±12 years) were included. To identify predictors of mortality, a case-control study was performed. Data including symptoms, functional class, medication, laboratory, and electrocardiographic and echocardiographic parameters are presented. Iron deficiency was common and strongly related to phlebotomy (relative risk 4.1, P
