Symptoms in patients with heart failure and preserved left ventricular ejection fraction may be caused by isolated diastolic dysfunction. The purpose of this study was to assess the prevalence of diastolic dysfunction as a potential cause of dyspnea in a sample of elderly subjects, as well as of isolated diastolic dysfunction as a potential cause of dyspnea in a subgroup with a preserved left ventricular ejection fraction and normal lung function.
