BACKGROUND Although systolic right ventricular (RV) dysfunction has been shown to be a potent predictor for adverse outcomes in patients with heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF), RV functional abnormalities in the course of the syndrome are not well characterized. We, therefore, sought to assess load-independent and load-dependent… CONTINUE READING
