7 Why so different results? Over and underdiagnosis Age of patients: it may be that the prognosis of DHF in elderly pts (>65 yo) is different Choice of diagnostic criteria/definition for CHF Type of population studied (hospitalized, out-pts, echo lab, population-based) Incident or recurrent CHF Timing of EF evaluation Racial differences Senni M & Redfield MM : JACC 2001

8 Heart Failure with Preserved Systolic Function or Diastolic Heart Failure Heart Failure with Preserved Systolic Function is a descriptive approach that makes no assumptions about our approach that makes no assumptions about our knowledge about the pathophysiology of this disorder knowledge about the pathophysiology of this disorder (Burkoff D, Maurer MS, Packer M. Circulation 2003) (Burkoff D, Maurer MS, Packer M. Circulation 2003) The predominant pathophysiological cause of heart failure in these patients is abnormal diastolic function. Therefore, is appropriate to use the term Diastolic Heart Failure to describe the abnormalities in these patients (Zile MR, Baicu CF, Gaash WH. NEJM 2004)

26 Clinical presentation –Acute pulmonary edema Response to treatment –Generally rapid Clinical course –Frequent relapses –Mild symptoms / Few LV abnormalities between the acute episodes Diastolic heart failure. Paroxysmal or chronic? Banerjee P, Clark AL, Nikitin N, Cleland JG. (Eur J Heart Fail Jun;6(4):427-31) Diastolic Heart Failure is predominantly Acute Heart Failure

29 Treatment of Diastolic Heart Failure There have been no large RCTs to establish the optimal evidence-based treatment Difficulties inherent in verifying the diagnosis Heterogeneity of the underlying causes Occurrence in elderly patients with multiple coexisting illnesses In the interim, the treatment remains empirical (aggressive treatment of underlying disease and precipitating factors) N Engl J Med 2001; 344: Editorial.
