BACKGROUND Atrial function is an important contributor of ventricular function and has a prognostic role in various cardiovascular diseases.

METHODS Two-dimensional (2D) speckle tracking echocardiography was(More)

She previously underwent balloon atrial septostomy (Rashkind procedure) early after birth, but her family declined further surgery.

Transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) and cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) demonstrated normal biventricular size and systolic function with severely dilated LA and no(More)
