What is chronic diastolic heart failure?

Chronic diastolic heart failure is characterized by a stiffness of the left ventricle, which means the heart doesn't relax and fill with blood normally. Heart failure can lead to symptoms such as trouble breathing, swelling, and feeling tired. Treatment typically includes taking meds for symptoms.
