OBJECTIVES The purposes of this study were to examine left atrial (LA) functional reserve in patients with heart failure (HF) with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) and to determine whether LA strain has an incremental diagnostic value over clinical and conventional echocardiographic parameters. BACKGROUND Patients with HFpEF have multiple cardiovascular reserve abnormalities. Although the LA is dysfunctional in HFpEF, the diagnostic value of LA strain remains unknown. METHODS The LA at… CONTINUE READING
