Özet

Background and objectives. Testosterone deficiency is associated with mortality in patients with heart failure; however, its effects on patients undergoing Left Ventricular Assist Device (LVAD) implantation are unclear. We investigated the role of total testosterone (TT) and free testosterone (FT) levels on mortality undergoing LVAD implantation.
