UNLABELLED OBEJCTIVE: To compare left ventricular (LV) systolic performance and contractility in patients with heart failure and normal ejection fraction (HFNEF), compared with patients with heart failure and reduced ejection fraction (HFREF) and healthy subjects using newer echocardiographic techniques. DESIGN A case-control trial. SETTING University teaching hospital (tertiary referral centre). PATIENTS Sixty healthy control subjects (53 ± 10 years), 112 patients with HFNEF (74 ± 12… CONTINUE READING
