Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Heart failure (HF) is classified into three types based on left ventricular contractility (ejection fraction (EF)). HF-reduced EF has been established to be treated with many cardioprotective medications, including the fantastic four. On the other hand, cardioprotective medications that have evidence of HF mildly reduced EF (HFmrEF) and HF-preserved EF (HFpEF) are sodium/glucose cotransporter 2 inhibitors only, and their treatment is often difficult. However, in an aging society, HFmrEF and HFpEF are on the rise. Therefore, especially in these types of HF, it is also important to suppress their progression to the symptomatic HF stage (stage C HF). Hypertension (HT) is a major cause of decreased cardiac diastolic function in HFpEF, and blood pressure control is possible to suppress symptomatic HF; however, the mechanism behind this is poorly understood.

The aim of this Special Issue is to bring new inspiration to daily clinical practice by discussing the mechanisms that induce HF in patients with HT.

In this Special Issue, we are broadly soliciting reports on epidemiological studies and original research on HT and HF. Reviews are also welcome. We look forward to receiving your contributions.
