  • PURPOSE OF REVIEW Women are approximately two times more likely than men to develop heart failure in the setting of preserved left ventricular ejection fraction [i.e. heart failure with preserved left ventricular ejection fraction (HFpEF)], but the reasons for this disparity are unknown. RECENT FINDINGS HFpEF is caused by changes in ventricular-vascular properties that are associated with aging and hypertensive cardiac remodeling. These changes lead to diastolic and systolic dysfunction and… CONTINUE READING
