Objectives: Estimate the prevalence of low HL level patients hospitalized for acute myocardial infarction (AMI) or acute decompensated heart failure (ADHF) and explore low HL determinants.

Design: A prospective cross-sectional study was performed and 208 participants were included.

Participants: Patients with ADHF and AMI. Proportion of low HL was 36% overall; 51% in ADHF patients and 21% in AMI patients.

Setting: Three units in a French cardiology teaching hospital: a cardiology intensive care unit and two conventional cardiology units.
