Left ventricular (LV) diastolic dysfunction is prevalent in the community. Current assessment of diastolic function can be complex, involving Doppler evaluation of an array of hemodynamic data. The relation between left atrial (LA) volume and diastolic function, and between LA volume and cardiovascular risk and disease burden are not well known. In the present prospective study of 140 adults, mean age 58 +/- 19 years, referred for a clinically-indicated echocardiogram and in sinus rhythm, with… CONTINUE READING
