Heart failure with preserved ejection fraction: current management and future strategies

Expert opinion on the behalf of the Nucleus of the “Heart Failure Working Group” of the German Society of Cardiology (DKG)

About 50% of all patients suffering from heart failure (HF) exhibit a reduced ejection fraction (EF ≤ 40%), termed HFrEF. The others may be classified into HF with midrange EF (HFmrEF 40–50%) or preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF, EF ≥ 50%).

The T-peak-to-T-end interval: a novel ECG marker for ventricular arrhythmia and appropriate ICD therapy in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is the most common monogenetic cardiovascular disease frequently characterized by an asymmetric increase in left ventricular wall thickness and an increased risk of sudden cardiac death (SCD), mostly due to …
