To the Editor: In their report on the use of aldosterone antagonists in HF, Dr Albert and colleagues1 observed that being African American was an independent predictor of aldosterone antagonist prescription. This is somewhat surprising considering the limited evidence for the efficacy of aldosterone antagonists in African American individuals with HF.
