Just wondering how they diagnose heart failure with preserved ejection fraction. My EF is always normal though I have stenosis and will need surgery at some point

Dr Borlaug at the Mayo cardio cath lab diagnosed it … involves measuring wedge pressure among other factors. Use to be called diastolic HF. Absolutely no effective treatment for it, although I am hopeful that CCM (cardiac contractility modulation devices) such as Impulse Dynamics’ Optimizer might finally be further developed to provide relief for fellow sufferers
