BACKGROUND Left atrial (LA) function is an important modulator of left ventricular filling and has a prognostic role in adult heart failure, but pediatric data are limited. The aim of this study was to characterize the normal LA and right atrial (RA) strain (ε) and strain rate (SR) in infants and children. METHODS Atrial ε and SR were prospectively… (More)
