Poster #16: Andie Sieja – Comparison of Left Atrial Shape between the Sexes Diagnosed with Atrial Fibrillation

Faculty mentor: Rob MacLeod

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a cardiac arrhythmia which interrupts the organized electrical and mechanical function of the atria. Previous studies have documented a range of differences in symptom severity and treatment outcomes between men and women with AF; they suggested that differences in outcomes between sexes could be related to shape differences in the left atrium (LA). We aimed to explore these proposed differences using statistical shape analysis.
