Abstract

Introduction: Growing evidence has demonstrated that diastolic heart failure occurs in about half of heart failure (HF) patients. We investigated thee effects of perindopril on echocardiographic parameters, New York Heart Association (NYHA) functional class and serum N-terminal pro B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) levels in patients with diastolic heart failure.
