Evaluation of Left Atrial Electromechanical Delay and Left Atrial Phasic Functions in Surgical Early Menopause Patients



Evaluation of Left Atrial Electromechanical Delay and Left Atrial Phasic Functions in Surgical Early Menopause Patients



Journal of Cardiovascular Imaging 27(2): 137-146



This study evaluated the atrial electromechanical delay (AEMD) and the left atrial (LA) mechanical functions in patients with surgical early menopause. A total of 62 patients were included in the study: 33 patients with surgical early menopause and 29 age- and sex-matched healthy controls. The duration distance from the start of the P wave to the beginning of the A wave for the lateral mitral annulus, septal mitral annulus, and lateral tricuspid annulus was assessed by tissue Doppler echocardiography. The differences in these durations were used to calculate the inter- and intra-atrial mechanical delays. LA volumes were evaluated using the biplane area-length technique, and LA mechanical function values were measured. The baseline laboratory and clinical characteristics were similar between the two groups. Surgical early menopause patients displayed increased static atrial electromechanical connection (PA') times for the septal mitral annulus and lateral tricuspid annulus compared to the controls. However, the lateral mitral annulus, the inter-atrial, the intra-LA, and the right atrial EMD PA' times were not significantly altered in surgical early menopause patients compared to controls. Importantly, the LA volume index (28.1 ± 8.17 vs. 24.89 ± 7.96 mL/m², p = 0.019), the maximal LA volume (49.6 ± 14.1 vs. 42.9 ± 16.1 mL, p = 0.004), the minimal LA volume (18.4 ± 7.0 vs. 15.2 ± 9.0 mL, p = 0.022), and the atrial precontraction LA volume (31.0 ± 10.9 vs. 24.9 ± 10.1 mL, p = 0.006) were higher in the patients with surgical early menopause compared to the controls. The LA reservoir, conduit and pumping functions and the total, passive, and active emptying volumes were all comparable between the two groups (p = 0.09; 0.06; 0.68; 0.06; 0.48; 0.07, respectively). Patients with surgical early menopause demonstrated impaired atrial electrical delay and electromechanical functions.
