The relative impact of comorbidities and parameters of left ventricular diastolic function on clinical outcome has not been thoroughly investigated in patients who are hospitalized for heart failure decompensation and found to have preserved ejection fraction. We identified 98 HFpEF patients among 1452 patients admitted with acute heart failure. Clinical characteristics, hemoglobin levels, estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR), B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) and Doppler… CONTINUE READING
