OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to evaluate the mechanisms for improved exercise capacity after endurance exercise training (ET) in elderly patients with heart failure and preserved ejection fraction (HFPEF). BACKGROUND Exercise intolerance, measured objectively by reduced peak oxygen consumption (VO(2)), is the primary chronic symptom in HFPEF and is improved by ET. However, the mechanisms are unknown. METHODS Forty stable, compensated HFPEF outpatients (mean age 69 ± 6 years… CONTINUE READING
