Figure 2: Fatty Acid Consumption and Myocardial Relaxation in Patients With Heart Failure With Preserved Ejection Fraction

Unsaturated fat (UFA) consumption (cumulative monounsaturated fat [MUFA] and polyunsaturated fat [PUFA]) were associated with higher E′ (A), lower deceleration time (DT) (C), and higher E′/DT ratio (E). Saturated fatty acids (SFAs) were associated with higher E′ (B) and higher E′/DT (F), but not with DT (D).
