ABSTRACT Heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) accounts for approximately 50% of all heart failure (HF) cases and is the fastest growing form of HF in the United States. The corner...

Abstract Objectives The aim of this study was to evaluate the association between age and invasive cardiovascular hemodynamics during upright exercise among healthy adults. Background The marked age-related decline in maximal exercise oxygen uptake (peak VO2) may contribute to the high burden of heart failure among older individuals and their greater severity of exertional symptoms. However, the mechanisms underlying this decline are not well understood. Methods A total of 104 healthy community-...
Purpose: This investigation aimed to examine the relationship among activities of daily living (ADL), nutritional status and 90-day hospital readmission in elderly heart failure (HF) patients. Methods: Participants were selected from 634 HF patients consecutively hospitalized at one institution. We investigated patient characteristics, ADL (motor and cognitive items of Functional Independence Measure (FIM)) and nutritional status (Geriatric Nutritional Risk Index (GNRI)). Data were analyzed usin...

Cancer survivors experience on average a 20% reduction in peak exercise capacity (VO2 peak) post-cancer treatment. Intermuscular fat (IMF) is a strong predictor of reduced exercise capacity in heart failure (HF) patients; however it is unknown whether increased IMF is related to reduced VO2 peak in cancer survivors. Twenty eight individuals: 14 cancer survivors > 12-months post-cancer treatment and 14 individuals without cancer were matched on age, gender, and body mass index (BMI). Participants...

We measured peak exercise capacity (VO2 peak) and resting and 20-s immediately post-exercise (IPE) measures of left ventricular (LV) volumes and cardiac output in 14 (5 men and 9 women) anthracycline-treated cancer survivors (ATS) ≥12 months removed from their treatment, and 14 age-, gender-,

We appreciate the thoughtful comments by Drs. Goldsmith and Simegn. We agree that a clearer understanding of various heart failure with preserved ejection (HFpEF) phenotypes, such as the 5 phenotypes proposed by Shah et al. [(1)][1] can facilitate advances in understanding and treating this
