Doppler measurement of left atrial appendage (LAA) blood velocity during transesophageal echocardiography has been proposed as a method of assessing LAA contractile function and thromboembolic risk. Clinical and echocardiographic determinants of five LAA Doppler blood velocity patterns were examined in 40 patients with a history of atrial fibrillation (AF), in 10 control subjects, and in 5 patients aged </=60 years having sinus rhythm and left ventricular hypertrophy. In sinus rhythm, two blood… CONTINUE READING
