Everything to know about diastolic heart failure

January 11, 2022

From the Medical News Today website

Diastolic heart failure involves the left side of the heart. It causes a stiff left ventricle that prevents the heart from relaxing between beats. This means that the heart can’t pump an adequate amount of blood throughout the body or has to pump with increased pressure.

Both systolic and diastolic heart failure involve the left side of the heart. Both types of heart failure can eventually lead to right-ventricle heart failure over time. 

However, there are important differences between the two. For example, with systolic heart failure, the left ventricle becomes weak and flaccid. With diastolic heart failure, the left ventricle bulks and hardens.

There are many symptoms, causes, and treatments for this high-mortality condition. Read on to learn more about diastolic heart failure.
