To investigate the effects of atrial fibrillation (AF) on the mitral and tricuspid valves, the corresponding annular dilatation and valvular regurgitation were compared with 2-dimensional and Doppler echocardiography in 31 consecutive patients with lone AF and 28 normal controls. Mid-systolic mitral and tricuspid annular areas were measured from 2 diameters in 2 orthogonal apical echocardiograms. Percent (%) mitral regurgitant (MR) or tricuspid regurgitant (TR) jet area to the left or right… CONTINUE READING
