Left atrial appendage (LAA) morphology, investigated by computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging, has proved to relate to the risk of cerebrovascular events in patients with Atrial Fibrillation (AF). Aim of the present study was to assess reproducibility of Transesophageal Echocardiography (TEE) imaging in describing LAA morphology.
