To the Editor: Dr Albert and colleagues1 studied the prescription of aldosterone antagonists for patients with heart failure (HF). Among the patients studied, 46% had nonischemic HF. It would be helpful to know whether the strength of the associations with aldosterone antagonist use found in the study differed between the nonischemic group and the ischemic group.
