Our aim was to investigate the relationships between left atrial (LA) structural and functional changes and left ventricular (LV) dysfunction related to LV pressure overload in asymptomatic patients with hypertension. One hundred and twenty-six asymptomatic patients with hypertension and LV ejection fraction (EF) ≥ 60% were studied. Conventional, pulsed and tissue Doppler, and two-dimensional speckle-tracking echocardiography (2DSTE) were performed to seek the independent determinants for… CONTINUE READING
