Diastolic Heart Failure- New Clinical Trial

Diastolic heart failure affects two and a half mission people around the world. Now there’s new hope for these heart patients. This heart condition happens when the heart becomes stiff and doesn’t relax enough to fill up completely between beats, causing blood to back up in and build pressure in the lungs. Symptoms can include shortness of breath, exercise intolerance, fatigue, and can be attributed to other conditions including depression and obesity. But a new trial is starting that could give doctors some answers on treatment. Clark Powell reports from the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center.
