Left Ventricular Diastolic Dysfunction (LVDD) is a disease in which the heart is unable to properly fill the left ventricle before the systolic contraction pushes the blood out of the chamber into the rest of the body . It is frequently characterized by elevated filling pressures within the heart. Over 70 million people in the United States with high blood pressure are at risk for LVDD , and numerous studies have shown a link between LVDD and heart failure. However, due to compensatory mechanisms early stage dysfunction can be difficult to diagnose.
