The purpose of this study is to explore the correlation between smokers' left atrium (LA) myocardial strain (MS), total ejection fraction (EFtotal) parameters and smoking parameters. This study demonstrated that LA global longitudinal strain (GLS) was significantly impaired and reduced with prolonged duration of smoking, smoking intensity and smoking burden.
