OBJECTIVES This study sought to determine the frequency of left ventricular amyloid in heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF). BACKGROUND Left ventricular amyloid deposition can cause diastolic dysfunction and HFpEF. METHODS Autopsy of left ventricular specimens from patients with antemortem diagnosis of HFpEF without clinically apparent amyloid (n = 109) and from control subjects (n = 131) were screened with sulfated Alcian blue and subsequent Congo red staining with… CONTINUE READING
