BACKGROUND Despite the American Society of Echocardiography recommendation to use left atrial volume indexed for body surface area (LAVI) for quantification of left atrial size, a variety of methods are used in clinical practice. Our objectives were to evaluate the accuracy of M-mode and two-dimensional (2D) echocardiographic LA size estimates to LAVI and to determine their ability to predict left ventricular diastolic dysfunction. METHODS In 150 consecutive patients, LA diameter (LAD), LA… CONTINUE READING
