Abstract

The role of left atrial (LA) function on exercise remains poorly understood in heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HfpEF) despite its key role in optimizing left ventricular (LV) diastolic function. We used resting and exercise radionuclide ventriculography to investigate the role of LA function in the pathophysiology of HfpEF.
