Effects of LA Function on PAP in AMI, Hypertrophic and Dilated Cardiomyopathy

BMC Cardiovasc Disord.

The left atrial (LA) function in HCM and DCM and LV fibrosis in DCM correlated with PASP independent of E/e′ and LA size, contrary to that in AMI. These results suggest the presence of LA dysfunction in non-ischemic cardiomyopathies and usefulness of ECV measurement in DCM for the comprehensive evaluation of LV diastolic function.
