Left Atrial Distensibility to Predict Prognosis in Consecutive Patients


Phase N/A Results N/A

Summary of Purpose

Left ventricular filling pressure (LVFP) has prognostic significance in patients with heart failure. Traditionally, it should be assessed by invasive method, as cardiac catheterization and Swan-Gung catheter. In advance of new techniques and modality, echocardiography provides some useful parameters for assessing LVFP, such myocardial tissue Doppler imaging. Many articles had documented that peak velocity of...
