Association between diastolic dysfunction and future atrial fibrillation in the Tromsø Study from 1994 to 2010
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-05-13)
Objective. To investigate the association between echocardiographic measurements with emphasis on diastolic dysfunction and risk of atrial fibrillation (AF) in a population-based cohort study. Methods. We followed 2406 participants from the Tromsø Study from 1994 to 2010. Left atrial (LA) size and mitral Doppler indices as measured by echocardiography were used for evaluating diastolic dysfunction. ...
