Prevalence Of Microvascular Dysfunction in Heart Failure with Preserved Ejection Fraction
The primary goal in the present study will be to investigate prevalence of coronary microvascular dysfunction in HFpEF patients as measured by Transthoracic Doppler Echocardiography (TDE) - assisted Coronary Flow Reserve (CFR).
Multi Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis - Early Heart Failure
The Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis (MESA) is a study of the characteristics of subclinical cardiovascular disease and the risk factors that predict progression to clinically overt cardiovascular disease or progression of the subclinical disease. MESA researchers study a diverse, population-based sample of 6,814 asymptomatic men and women aged 45-84. The heart failure ancillary study aims to determine the prevalence, pathogenesis, and phenomics of early heart failure among 3,500 older adults attending the MESA Year-15 exam.
