The researchers used "Rochester Epidemiology Project" medical records, selected from 596 HF patients, and 596 healthy volunteers as control. The researchers found, 1979 ~1990, was diagnosed with heart failure patients, cancer risk increased by 48%; in the years 1991~2002, was diagnosed with heart failure patients, cancer risk increased by 86%, thirty-eight percentage points higher than the previous 11 years. The researchers analyzed that heart failure patients, increased risk of cancer, or other physiological mechanism and associated with heart failure (such as inflammation) and disease caused by pressure, treatment side effects and so on.
