Default Q.Lt. vent end diastolic pressure

Q. What is mean by Left ventricular end diastolic pressure (LVEDP)? Is it the pressure on the left ventricle exerted by the volume of the blood at the end of diastole OR is it the pressure exerted by the ventricle to pump out blood? I got confused when I found some correlations in "diastolic failure" mentioning "In Lt vent diastolic dysfunction, LVEDP increases trying to empty more completely to maintain CO and stroke volume".If so, how does LVEDP helps to maintain cardiac output in diastolic dysfunction?Can anybody pls clarify the concept of LVEDP, thanks.
