Left atrial eccentricity in chronic mitral regurgitation: relation to left atrial function
European Heart Journal – Cardiovascular Imaging, 05/30/2012
Yi JE et al. – Left atrial (LA) becomes more spherical with increasing severity of MR, suggesting a decrease in LAE, which is mainly determined by the volume overload. LAE might be closely related to the LA systolic function in chronic mitral regurgitation (MR).
