The impact of hypertension as a road to heart failure with preserved ejection fraction: diagnostic value of two-dimensional speckle tracking echocardiography for the early impairment of left atrial-left ventricular-arterial coupling.

Abstract

Heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFPEF) is a syndrome that frequently occurs in older people and patients with cardiovascular risk factors, particularly hypertension. This syndrome is not a specific disease process, whereas is associated with high morbidity and mortality in patients with heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFREF) as… (More)
