Özet

PurposeLeft atrial (LA) volume has been shown to be a predictor of adverse cardiovascular outcomes. The aim of this study was to evaluate the relation between LA phasic volumes and hypertensive end-organ damage (EOD), by using real time three-dimensional echocardiography (RT3DE) in patients with essential hypertension (HT).
