Evidence supports two types of heart failure

w therapies, might be effective against diastolic heart failure."

Congestive heart failure is the leading cause of hospitalization in older patients. Previous research from Kitzman and colleagues showed that more than half of older adults with heart failure have the second form of the disorder, known as diastolic heart failure. Because there has been little research into treating diastolic heart failure, doctors don't yet know if the same treatments used for systolic heart failure (diuretics and medications to expand the blood vessels or increase the force of the heart's contractions) will be effective. Researchers at Wake Forest are currently evaluating treatments for diastolic heart failure, including exercise and investigational drugs.
