BACKGROUND Older heart failure (HF) patients exhibit exercise intolerance during activities of daily living. We hypothesized that reduced lower extremity blood flow (LBF) due to reduced forward cardiac output would contribute to submaximal exercise intolerance in older HF patients. METHODS AND RESULTS Twelve HF patients both with preserved and reduced left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) (aged 68 +/- 10 years) without large (aorta) or medium sized (iliac or femoral artery) vessel… CONTINUE READING
