OBJECTIVES This study sought to evaluate control mechanism of the varying left ventricular performance in atrial fibrillation. BACKGROUND Atrial fibrillation is characterized by a randomly irregular ventricular response, resulting in continuous variation in left ventricular beat-to-beat mechanical behavior and hemodynamic variables. METHODS Fourteen patients with chronic nonvalvular atrial fibrillation were studied, using a nonimaging computerized nuclear probe linked to a personal computer… CONTINUE READING
