Objective In patients with coronary artery disease (CAD), there are several studies that assessed the left ventricular (LV) function by strain (S) and strain rate (SR) imaging. The aim of this study is to evaluate the function of both atria in patients with CAD using strain and strain rate imaging, and to correlate this with the severity of CAD. Methods We conducted a prospective, single center case control study for 40 consecutive patients who presented to our department with chronic stable… CONTINUE READING
