Diastolic Dysfunction Definition and Symptoms

Diastolic dysfunction is an abnormality in the way the heart fills with blood during diastole. The muscles in the heart do not relax properly and the heart fills too slowly and causes the ventricular wall to stiffen. This can lead to blood building up in the lungs and other organs. Symptoms are shortness of breath and death if not treated promptly.”
