Introduction Echocardiographic assessment of left ventricular diastolic function (LVDF) remains a challenging entity. The assessment of LVDF is part of the minimum dataset for transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) as defined by the British

in low trans-tricuspid E velocity; the ratio between E and e′ is therefore low. However, when RV diastolic function is impaired and filling pressures are increased, e′ velocities are reduced due to impaired myocardial relaxation whilst elevated RAP

HFrEF. We now know that both anatomical structure and cardiac function offer prognostic insight in HFrEF and for that reason, it is important to do a comprehensive echocardiogram. This includes evaluating both LV systolic and diastolic function in
