BACKGROUND Left atrial (LA) enlargement is a powerful risk factor for cardiovascular diseases; little information is available about its prevalence and correlates in subjects free of overt cardiac disease seen in echocardiographic practice. AIM We evaluated the prevalence of LA enlargement (LAE) and the relationship with left ventricular (LV) mass and diastolic function in subjects with preserved LV systolic function referred to an echocardiographic study for routine clinical indications… CONTINUE READING
