abstract

  • This study represents the largest cohort of patients hospitalized with HFpEF to date, yielding the following observations: number of hospitalizations for HFpEF was comparable with that of HFrEF; patients with HFpEF were most often women and elderly, with a high burden of comorbidities; outcomes appeared improved among a subset of patients; pulmonary hypertension, liver disease, and chronic renal failure were strongly associated with poor outcomes.
