The impact of heart failure with preserved left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) on activated hemostasis is still unclear. We sought to compare the activation of hemostasis in patients with heart failure with preserved LVEF, with impaired LVEF, and in healthy controls. Biomarkers of coagulation and fibrinolysis (D-dimer, tPA and PAI-1) were determined in outpatients with chronic stable (NYHA I-III), optimally managed heart failure with preserved LVEF (n = 46) and with impaired LVEF (n = 52… CONTINUE READING
