Association of the Active and Passive Components of Left Atrial Deformation with Left Ventricular Function.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Left atrial (LA) strain imaging enables the quantitative assessment of LA function. The clinical relevance of these measurements is dependent on the provision of information incremental to the left ventricular (LV) evaluation. The aim of this study was to test the hypothesis that LA pump function but not reservoir function is independent of… (More)
