“The EMPEROR-Preserved trial is the first randomized controlled trial testing the efficacy and safety of SGLT2 inhibitors (empagliflozin) in patients with HFpEF. The EMPEROR-Preserved trial has proven that SGLT2 inhibitors can significantly reduce HF hospitalization with neutral effect on cardiovascular (CV) death, and now the door is open for further exploration by other members of the SGLT2 family in also reducing CV mortality in HFpEF patients”.
