Abstract

Heart failure is a global public health problem, with more than 37 million patients living with heart failure around the world. Heart failure with preserved ejection fraction is an increasingly common category (approximately 60% of the cases) and shows remarkable differences in diagnosis and treatment when compared with heart failure with reduced ejection fraction. The current review covers epidemiology, risk factors, pathophysiologic mechanisms, clinical and paraclinical characteristics and diagnostic criteria of heart failure with preserved ejection fraction and concludes with a plea for original research in our country.
