I was diagnosed with diastolic dysfunction. The report says velocity E is 84.2 cm/s, and the MVA max velocity is 133.5 cm/s. What does this mean?

Diastolic dysfunction means there is dysfunction in cardiac relaxation. This is not a worrisome thing and quite common in elders, overweight and patients with hypertension, and other diseases which must have been ruled out on echo and ECG.
