AIM The aim of this study was to explore the relationships between plasma concentrations of N-terminal pro brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) and characteristics and prognosis of patients with heart failure and preserved (HFPEF) left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF). No substantial trial has shown that treatment alters prognosis in patients with HFPEF due, in part, to much lower than anticipated event rates. The lack of a simple, objective test to identify patients with HFPEF at… CONTINUE READING
