Table 5 LA strain values of patients with 0, 1, or 2 signs of LV DD

From: Left atrial strain - an early marker of left ventricular diastolic dysfunction in patients with hypertension and paroxysmal atrial fibrillation

  Contractile strain mean (± SD) Conduit strain mean (± SD) Reservoir strain mean (± SD)
0 signs of LV DD −15.68 (± 6.73) % 18.87 (± 4.44) % 35.82 (± 6.93) %
1 sign of LV DD −13.74 (± 5.85) % 15.43 (± 4.57) % 30.48 (± 6.10) %
2 signs of LV DD −12.96 (± 4.80) % 13.72 (± 4.30) % 26.68 (± 7.68) %
  1. Strain values decrease as there are more signs of LV DD
