Abstract

No therapy has been proven to reduce morbidity and mortality in patients with heart failure and preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF). Owing to the deleterious cardiovascular effects of aldosterone, mineralocorticoid antagonists hold promise to treat this disorder. The Aldo-DHF trial provides valuable insights into the effects of these agents in HFpEF.
