The effect of Aliskiren on exercise capacity in older patients with heart failure and preserved ejection fraction: A randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind trial.
Journal Article (Letter)
In older patients (70 ± 7 years) with chronic well-compensated heart failure with preserved ejection and controlled blood pressure, 6 months treatment with aliskiren (direct renin inhibitor) showed non-significant trends for modest improvements in peak exercise oxygen consumption (14.9 ± 0.2 mL kg-1 min-1 versus 14.4 ± 0.2 mL kg-1 min-1; P = .10, trend) and ventilatory anaerobic threshold (888 ± 19 mL/min versus 841 ± 18 mL/min; P = .08).
