The pathophysiology of HfpEF is complex. In this review we discuss the molecular aspects of HfpEF as well as the profoundly disturbed haemodynamics with particular focus on exercise haemodynamic abnormalities.
- diastolic heart failure
- exercise haemodynamics
- large artery stiffness
- left ventricular stiffness
- ventricular-vascular coupling
