Diastolic heart failure, also termed as heart failure with normal or preserved ejection fraction has a high prevalence and mortality world wide. The clinical manifestation comprises typical symptoms and signs of heart failure along with normal or discretely reduced left ventricular ejection fraction. Though the etiology of diastolic heart failure is incompletely understood, functional and structural abnormalities of cardiomyocytes, the extracellular matrix, and the peripheral vasculature are assumed to contribute to the etiology of diastolic heart failure. The diagnosis requires typical symptoms and signs of heart failure, evidence of elevated natriuretic peptides and an impaired diastolic ventricular function, meanwhile left ventricular systolic function is normal or just slightly impaired. Catheter and MRI exams help to ensure the diagnosis. So far, no therapy has convincingly demonstrated a reduction of morbiditiy and mortality. Therefore, current guidelines emphasize the importance of an adequate treatment of risk factors and myocardial ischemia.
