In this construct, fundamental physiological, biological, and structural changes associated with CV aging itself lead to increased fibrosis, increased ventricular-arterial stiffening, ventricular diastolic dysfunction, and HF with preserved ejection fraction [8–11, 19– 21]. In addition, interactions among CV risk factors and the aging heart substrate compounded by the effect of comorbidities can be expected to act in concert and further fuel the march to HF. Major comorbidities include hypertension, CAD, type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome, and obesity.

Unless appropriate preventive strategies and measures are implemented urgently, the prevalence, related complications, and total burden of HF in elderly men and women will very likely expand and tax the future healthcare systems even more. Many authors since the 1990s have commented on the increasing economic burden due to mortality, morbidity, hospitalization, and emergency department visits in the growing adult and elderly populations with HF [5–14]. Prevention of HF in the present and future elderly populations should therefore be a healthcare priority.
