Prognostic value of the New York Heart Association classification in end-stage renal disease
Nephrology, Dialysis and Transplantation
Background. The New York Heart Association (NYHA) classification is a strong predictor of mortality and an established instrument for risk stratification in patients with heart disease but data on the validity of this classification in end-stage renal disease (ESRD) are sparse. Methods.
