Relationship between left atrial appendage function and left atrial thrombus in patients with nonvalvular chronic atrial fibrillation and atrial flutter.

Abstract

The relationship between the left atrial appendage (LAA) function, as assessed by transesophageal echocardiography, and the incidence of left atrial thrombus was evaluated in 62 patients with nonvalvular chronic atrial fibrillation (AF; n=50) and atrial flutter (AFL; n=12). It was hypothesized that in both AF and AFL not only the LAA flow velocity (LAAFV… (More)
