Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. All-cause mortality [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline at 3, 6 and 12 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. New York Heart Association (NYHA) Classification [ Time Frame: Week:4 ]
  2. re-hospitalization [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline at 3, 6 and 12 months ]
    Heart failure with re-hospitalization is documented by at least one of the following: worse exercise tolerance and respiratory distress with NYHA class III or IV symptoms, presence of pulmonary rales, or chest radiography showing pulmonary congestion, which needs an augmented decongestive regimen with oral or intravenous medications during an in-hospital stay.

  3. plasma brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) concentration [ Time Frame: Week:4 ]
  4. Cardiovascular death [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline at 3, 6 and 12 months ]
  5. Cardiac transplantation [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline at 3, 6 and 12 months ]
