  • HFpEF is characterized by abnormal diastolic function, which manifests as an increase in the stiffness of the heart's left ventricle and a decrease in left ventricular relaxation when filling with blood before the next beat. (wikipedia.org)
  • If the heart tissue (walls of left and right ventricle) gets too big and stretches too far, then those filaments cannot effectively pull on one another to shorten the muscle fibers, thus impacting the heart's sliding filament mechanism. (wikipedia.org)

  • or M-mode echocardiograms that were not sufficiently good for detection of clear internal lines of the interventricular septum and left ventricular (LV) posterior wall, were excluded from the analysis. (ahajournals.org)
