Left atrial (LA) operative mean stiffness was measured using simultaneous recordings of the left ventricular (LV) pressure and M-mode echocardiography of the LA and mitral valve. The LA operative passive mean stiffness value was obtained during LV systole using LV pressure at the mitral valve opening and the pre-atrial contraction where the LV and LA… CONTINUE READING
