Conclusion

HFNEF syndrome is a heterogenous entity with high prevalence and mortality rates almost as high as that of systolic HF. It is a relatively common cause of HF in the elderly and has a variety of causes and pathophysiological mechanisms. Despite improvements in its understanding, many questions remain and, as yet, there are no treatments of any proven benefit. Ongoing trials are underway.
