Left atrium remodeling after acute myocardial infarction (results of the GISSI-3 Echo Substudy). The American Journal of Cardiology, 93, pp. 1156-1159, 2004.

Abstract: To evaluate the existence, timing, and determinants
of post-infarction left atrial remodeling, we studied a
subgroup of 514 patients from the Third Gruppo
Italiano per lo Studio della Sopravvivenza nell’Infarto
Miocardico Echo Substudy who underwent 4 serial
2-dimensional echocardiograms up to 6 months after
acute myocardial infarction. This study is the first to
demonstrate, in a large series of patients, the existence
of early and late left atrial remodeling after
low-risk acute myocardial infarction and the relation
of left atrial remodeling to left ventricular

Keywords: left atrium remodeling, myocardial infarction, echocardiography, follow-up studies
