Abstract

The analysis of diastolic function is not only relevant to the evaluation of symptoms in patients who have heart failure and normal ejection fraction, it also carries prognostic and therapeutic implications in patients who have systolic heart failure. Echocardiographic indices can establish the diagnosis and severity and the specific mechanism of diastolic heart failure in most patients. Accordingly, it is important for both the clinician and the echocardiographer to acquire in-depth knowledge of conventional and newer echocardiographic indices of diastolic function and to apply these indices in clinical practice.
