Abstract: Background: An ageing population increases the prevalence of heart failure (HF) and aortic stenosis (AS). Several studies have investigated prognosis and predictors of HF with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) compared to heart failure with reduced ejection frac-tion (HFrEF), with inconsistent results. Valvular heart diseases gain importance in HF aetiology. How often AS occurs with age, the factors that might predict it, how aortic valvular interventions influence outcome of HF remain inadequ... more
