Relation of peripheral collagen markers to death and hospitalization in patients with heart failure and preserved ejection fraction : results of the I-PRESERVE collagen substudy.

Heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFPEF) is a common and increasing public health problem. Myocardial fibrosis is a key pathological feature of HFPEF. Peripheral collagen markers may reflect this excess fibrosis; however, the relation of these markers to prognosis in patients with HFPEF has not as yet been determined.
