Epidemiology of Heart Failure in Korea: Present and Future.

Abstract Heart failure (HF) is an important healthcare issue because of its high mortality, morbidity, and healthcare costs. The number of HF patients is increasing worldwide as a consequence of aging of the population. However, there are limited studies on the prevalence of HF in Korea. This study aimed to estimate the prevalence of HF, its comorbidities, and the projected population with HF in the future.

AB  - BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Heart failure (HF) is an important healthcare issue
      because of its high mortality, morbidity, and healthcare costs. The number of HF 
      patients is increasing worldwide as a consequence of aging of the population.
      However, there are limited studies on the prevalence of HF in Korea. This study
      aimed to estimate the prevalence of HF, its comorbidities, and the projected
      population with HF in the future. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The prevalence and
      comorbidity estimates of HF were determined using data from the 2002-2013
      National Sample Cohort based on the National Health Information Database. We
      calculated the projected prevalence of HF by multiplying the estimated prevalence
      in 2013 by the projected population counts for 2015-2040. RESULTS: The prevalence
      of HF in Korea was estimated to be 1.53% in 2013. The prevalence of HF in Korea
      is expected to increase by 2-fold, from 1.60% in 2015 to 3.35% in 2040. By 2040, 
      more than 1.7 million Koreans are expected to have HF. In terms of comorbid
      diseases of HF, ischemic heart disease, hypertension, and diabetes mellitus were 
      common (45.4%, 43.6%, and 49.1% in 2013, respectively). The prevalence rates of
      arrhythmia, valvular disease, and cardiomyopathy in HF patients were
      approximately 22.6%, 5.6%, and 3.1% in 2013, respectively. CONCLUSION: This is
      the first nationwide report in Korea to demonstrate the prevalence and
      comorbidities of HF. These data may be used for the prevention and management of 
      HF in Korea.
