Hello doctor,

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?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

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. However, this may cause symptoms like shortness of breath, pedal edema, etc. Needs to have a low salt diet and low dose diuretics like Torsemide for shortness of breath. I Hope this helps you and get back if you have any doubts.
