Abstract

The effect of atrial fibrillation on pulmonary venous flow patterns is still not well known. Twenty-four patients in atrial fibrillation and 21 patients in sinus rhythm were studied by transoesophageal echocardiography. In ninety-five percent (20/ 21) of sinus rhythm patients, the early systolic wave due to atrial relaxation or reverse wave due to atrial contraction could be distinguished on pulsed Doppler tracings by transoesophageal echocardiography. However, there was no early systolic wave and/or reverse at the end of diastole in any atrial fibrillation patients. In atrial fibrillation patients without mitral regurgitation (n = 14), the onset of systolic flow was delayed (165 ± 38 vs 50 ± 46 ms, P-1, P
