Recurrent syncope is a major cause of hospitalizations and may be associated with cardiovascular co-morbidities. Despite this, prognostic factors and the clinical characteristics among patients are not well described. Therefore, we identified and analyzed data on all patients >50 years of age discharged after a first-time episode of syncope in the period 2001 to 2009 through nationwide administrative registries. We identified the clinical characteristics of 5,141 patients ≥85 years of age and 23,454 patients
