Objective: To evaluate the changes of the left atrial systolic function in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) using quantitative tissue velocity imaging (QTVI). Methods: The systolic velocities of the middle of left atrial lateral wall, anterior wall, inferior wall and atrial septum were measured with QTVl in 45 patients with AMI.The left atrial volume and active atrial emptying fraction (AA-EF) were measured using single-plane Simpson method. Results: (1) Compared with the control… CONTINUE READING
