Elevated left atrial (LA) pressure, particularly during exercise, is associated with symptomatic status and survival in patients with heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF). We aimed to characterize the contribution of abnormal LA mechanical properties to exercise haemodynamics in HFpEF. 
Left atrial function and maximal exercise capacity in heart failure with preserved and mid‐range ejection fraction
TLDR
This work aims to assess the association between LA function and maximal exercise capacity in patients with HFpEF or HFmrEF and to investigate the relationship between exercise intolerance and left atrial function.
Left atrial function in heart failure with preserved ejection fraction: a systematic review and meta‐analysis
Left atrial (LA) mechanical function may play a significant role in the development and progression of heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF). We performed a systematic review and

TLDR
This work sought to define whether abnormal LA dynamics during exercise may play a role in cardiac output (CO) limitation and tested its ability to predict outcome.

Despite a substantial body of clinical trial research, an effective pharmacological strategy has yet to be identified for patients with heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF). The
Determinants and consequences of heart rate and stroke volume response to exercise in patients with heart failure and preserved ejection fraction
TLDR
This work sought to determine if a heterogeneity in heart rate and stroke volume response to exercise exists in patients with HFpEF and describe possible clinical phenotypes associated with differences in these responses.

TLDR
In this issue of the Journal, Telles et al. present intriguing data that shed new light on the contribution of LA mechanics to abnormal exercise haemodynamics in patients with HFpEF.
Prognostic power of left atrial strain in patients with acute heart failure.
TLDR
The prognostic power of peak atrial longitudinal strain of the left atrium according to heart failure (HF) phenotypes and atrial fibrillation (AF) was similar regardless of HF phenotypes, but PALS was not associated with clinical events in AF patients.

TLDR
Impairment in LV systolic and diastolic function largely explains the association between impaired LA function and higher risk of HF hospitalization in HFpEF.

TLDR
The association of reduced LA function with impaired exercise capacity was similar to that of elevated LVE/e', emphasising the role of ventriculo-atrial coupling to cardiac dysfunction with preserved LVEF.

Incremental diagnostic value of la strain with leg lifts in heart failure with preserved ejection fraction.
TLDR
An enlarged LA compensates for LA dysfunction and maintains LASV at rest in patients with HFpEF, however, depressed LA reserve affects LA performance during leg lifts.
Left atrial mechanical adaptation to long-standing hemodynamic loads based on pressure-volume relations.
TLDR
Early in heart failure, LA pump function is augmented but LA stiffness increases and work mismatch occurs, and with further progression of LV dysfunction,LA pump function decreases as a result of increased afterload imposed on the LA myocardium.
