The aim of this study was to characterize left atrial appendage mechanical function in atrial fibrillation and flutter by Fourier analysis to analyze frequency and regularity of flow. Left atrial appendage function is central to a patient's risk for thromboembolism. Although the function of the appendage can be analyzed by Doppler echocardiography in sinus… CONTINUE READING
