Background:Although the aged population is increasing in developed countries, clinical evidence on super-elderly heart failure (HF) patients is scarce. This study determined the characteristics and outcomes of Japanese hospitalized super-elderly HF patients (aged ≥90 years) using a nationwide inpatient database.Methods and Results:A comprehensive analysis was performed of 447,818 HF patients in the Diagnosis Procedure Combination database who were hospitalized and discharged between January 2010 and March 2018. Among the study population, 243,028 patients (54.3%) were aged ≥80 years and 64,628 patients (14.4%) were aged ≥90 years. The percentage of elderly patients increased over time. Elderly patients were more likely to be female and had a higher New York Heart Association functional class at admission. Invasive and advanced procedures were rarely performed, whereas infectious complications were more common in patients with older age. Length of hospital stay and in-hospital mortality increased with age. Multivariable logistic regression analysis fitted with a generalized estimating equation showed higher in-hospital mortality in patients aged ≥80 and ≥90 years (odds ratios 1.99 and 3.23, respectively) compared with those aged <80 years.Conclusions:The number of hospitalized super-elderly HF patients has increased, and these patients are associated with worse clinical outcomes. The results of this study may be useful in establishing an optimal management strategy for super-elderly HF patients in the era of HF pandemic.
