Transesophageal pulsed Doppler echocardiography was performed to examine changes with age in the left atrial appendage flow velocity patterns in 50 normal subjects (15 to 80 years) in sinus rhythm. There was a significant negative correlation between the peak early diastolic forward and backward left atrial appendage flow velocities and age, as well as a significant positive correlation between the peak early diastolic forward left atrial appendage flow velocity and the peak early diastolic… CONTINUE READING
