Left atrial enlargement is common in many cardiac diseases; a major determinant of this enlargement is left ventricular diastolic pressure. Left atrial volume (LAV) has recently been linked to adverse prognosis. The objective of our study was to assess LAV as a prognostic marker in patients with dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) and to correlate LAV with other known prognostic factors such as maximum oxygen consumption (VO2 max) and pro-B-type natriuretic peptide (pro-BNP).pmid:20058774 fatcat:vcomtvvqvraf7k5huvf4kepfwi
