ABSTRACT Objective: This study was prospectively designed to evaluate the relationship between the mitral A wave acceleration slope (AWA-slope) and the left atrial ejection fraction (LA-EF) after the restoration of sinus rhythm in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF), and also to evaluate the change in the AWA-slope between the sequent second day and first month.
Indeed, a study of 106 patients with dilated cardiomyopathy showed that the greater the propeptide of type III procollagen concentration, the more likely the echocardiography was to show an irreversible restrictive mitral-filling pattern; this association was independent of left ventricular and left atrial ejection fractions in a multivariate analysis (Heart 90[6]:650-54, 2004).
