2D ECHO

I have undergone 2D Echo test as a normal routine test. The test report is normal except the remark "Grade 1 LV diastolic dysfunction". I have no problem otherwise. Please advice if any action is required ?Thanks.

Probably the best way to describe diastolic dysfunction is that a  normal LV diastolic function may be clinically defined as the capacity of the left ventricle to receive a LV filling volume able in its turn to pump an  adequate stroke volume, operating at a low pressure regimen.

The cause for DD is usually due to the chamber walls are rigid and does not relax ienough to fill adequately and/or the walls and/or septum (wall dividing the heart chambers) are thickened to the degree it crowds out filling capacity.

I would consider asking your cardiologist if you have a Left Ventricular Hypertrophy or also called: Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy.
