Passive Leg Raise: An Indispensable Maneuver in the Study of Heart Failure with Preserved Ejection Fraction

Heart failure (HF) with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) accounts for at least 50% of the HF population, with an increasing prevalence. Its diagnosis is based on the presence of typical symptoms and increased filling pressures, with an ejection fraction greater than 50%. In some cases—especially in the earlier stages of the disease—, laboratory and echocardiographic
