Monday, March 07 2016 @ 03:41 EET
Arterial hypertension (HTN) is a common cardiovascular pathology that usually complicates with cardiac dysfunction. HTN alters atrial dynamics significantly, leading to left atrial (LA) morphological and functional abnormalities.
Echocardiography proved to be an adequate method of evaluation of LA remodeling, by its means of assessing with accuracy LA size, volumes and its multiple functions [...]View full article
