Platelet Reactivity Is Independent of Left Atrial Wall Deformation in Patients with Atrial Fibrillation


It has been documented recently that left atrial (LA) deformation in AF patients (while in AF) is predictive of subsequent stroke risk. Additionally, diminished LA deformation during AF correlates with the presence of LA blood stasis. Given that endothelial function is dependent on laminar blood flow, the present study sought to investigate the effect of… (More)
