Abstract

The aim of this study was to examine the prevalence of exercise limitationdue to diastolic heart failure among patients felt to have cardiac breathlessness by their general medical practitioner but not referred to hospital. We found that 18% of patients had a simple investigated profile compatiblewith isolated diastolic dysfunction as a cause of their symptoms. Symptomsappeared to pre-date major cardiac events (infarction; stroke; arrhythmia)that dominated the subsequent clinical course. The patients in this group have adverse cardiovascular risk profiles. Obesity was a common co-morbidity which may impair detailed 2-D echocardiographic assessment. (C) 2001 European Society of Cardiology. All rights reserved.
