Expected ages in the patients of chronic diseases.
Ann King Edward Med Uni Jan ;10(4):456-8.
This retrospective study was conducted to find out the expected ages in the patients of hepatic cirrhosis, chronic renal failure and heart failure. This study thus covers most of the patients of out medical wards presenting with chronic illnesses. On comparison of these expected ages it is also found that the expected age in all these three groups is not much different. So, the disease process or the mechanism of the chronic disease in the body may be different, but somehow the final out come is not much different in terms of life span.
