BACKGROUND Almost 40% of patients with heart failure (HF) have preserved left ventricular (LV) ejection fraction (EF) and prognosis similar to those with reduced EF. Data on prognostic markers in such patients are limited. We analyzed the prevalence and prognostic value of left atrial (LA) size in this condition. METHODS 89 normal subjects (Group I), 38 asymptomatic hypertensive patients (Group II) and 183 HF patients with preserved EF (EF >45%) (Group III) were studied. LA diameter (LAD), LV… CONTINUE READING
