BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES The purpose of the current study was to assess left atrial (LA) physiology in relation to associations between LA volume change and regional tissue velocities and strains, and to extend this information to patients with mitral stenosis (MS) or mitral regurgitation (MR). SUBJECTS AND METHODS Twenty-two healthy persons, 22 patients with moderate-to-severe MS, and 22 patients with moderate-to-severe MR were studied. Tissue velocities, strains, and time-volume curves of… CONTINUE READING
