Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between left ventricular mass (LVM) and interatrial conduction delay (CD) measured by tissue Doppler echocardiography. In enrolled 66 hypertensive patients, positive correlation between interatrial CD and LVM index (r = 0.32) was detected. Meanwhile, intra-atrial CD was correlated to early diastolic tissue Doppler mitral annular velocity measured from septum (r = 0.34), tricuspid annular velocity (r = 0.29), and left atrial volume index (r = 0.26). By using stepwise linear regression analysis, LVM index was determined as an independent predictor of interatrial CD.
