Heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF), also known as diastolic heart failure, is a complex entity. It is due to various causes and has heterogeneous presentations and therefore, has evaded evidence compelling for developing standard guidelines for therapeutic intervention. In February 2021, the US Federal Drug Agency approved Sacubitril-Valsartan (angiotensin receptor neprilysin inhibitor-angiotensin receptor blocker: ARNIARB) combination for HFpEF. A past review (Part 1) outlined the experience and management of HFpEF with comments on various clinical trials using other classes of drugs. This second part of the review shall discuss the emerging importance of SGLT-2 inhibitors for HFpEF.
