BACKGROUND This study attempted to identify the role of combined conventional and novel echocardiographic techniques in evaluation of left atrial (LA) function to predict the postoperative atrial fibrillation (POAF). METHODS In this cross-sectional study, subjects with sinus rhythm who were candidates for CABG were enrolled. Preoperative LA function was evaluated by conventional echocardiography and 2-dimensional strain imaging based-velocity vector imaging (VVI). VVI-derived systolic peak… CONTINUE READING
