Left atrial strain predicts cardiovascular response to exercise in young adults with suboptimal blood pressure
Aims To investigate the left ventricular response to exercise in young adults with hypertension, and identify whether this response can be predicted from changes in left atrial function at rest.
Methods A total of 127 adults aged 18–40 years who completed clinical blood pressure assessment and echocardiography phenotyping at rest and during cardiopulmonary exercise testing, were included. Measurements were compared between participants with subopti...Expand abstract
