INTRODUCTION The extent of left atrial (LA) adverse remodeling as a cardiac disease marker has become increasingly important. In patients with atrial fibrillation (AF), atrial remodeling (AR) is accompanied by increased mortality. The relation between LA function and the extent of low-voltage areas (LVAs) has not yet been systematically investigated. METHODS In patients with AF undergoing catheter-ablation, LA was studied using echocardiography and ultra-high-density mapping (Rhythmia… CONTINUE READING
