Left ventricular diastolic dysfunction (LVDD) has only recently been recognized as an important determinant of perioperative morbidity. Intraoperative echocardiographers have been slow to adopt assessment of LVDD into clinical practice. This has been partly attributable to the complex measurements required to characterize LVDD, which are in turn related to how our understanding of diastole has evolved. Additionally, the lack of effective therapeutic options has left many wondering whether it is… CONTINUE READING
