Right Ventricular Dysfunction in HFpEF: No Innocent Bystander

 

Two studies in right ventricular function in heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFPEF) and right heart dysfunction in HFPEF — one community-based and the other catheterization laboratory-based — are discussed by Barry A. Borlaug, M.D., Jeffrey B. Geske, M.D., Selma F. Mohammed, M.D., and Margaret M. Redfield, M.D., Cardiovascular Diseases at Mayo Clinic's campus in Rochester, Minnesota.
