Abstract: Background:Determinants of poor outcome in atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) according to left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) are unclear. The renal resistive index (RRI) correlates well with atherosclerotic vascular damage, which, in turn, is correlated with cardiovascular outcomes. This study investigated whether high RRI is associated with poor cardiovascular outcomes in ASCVD patients classified by LVEF. Methods and Results:Records of 1,598 acute coronary syndromes (ACS) and acute decompensated heart failure (ADHF) patients, categorized into preserved (p), mid-range (mr), and reduced (r) ejection fraction (EF) groups (EF ≥50% [n=1,130], 40–50% [n=223], and
