abstract

  • Patients with DHF have increased LV mass and LA volume in comparison with normal controls, but not versus patients with LV hypertrophy who are not in heart failure. On the other hand, LA(S) strain is significantly reduced and LA stiffness is the most accurate index in identifying patients with DHF.
