Background Left atrial size is prognostically important in dogs with myxomatous mitral valve disease (MMVD). Hypothesis/Objectives To compare the level of agreement in identification of left atrial enlargement (LAE) between the left atrial-to-aortic root ratio (LA : Ao) and left atrial volume using the biplane area-length method indexed to body weight (LA Vol/BW). Animals Sixty dogs with MMVD and 22 normal dogs were prospectively studied with 2-dimensional echocardiography. Methods The upper limit of normal for LA Vol/BW was defined as 1.1 mL/kg. LA : Ao was deemed normal if ≤1.5. To define overall disease severity, each dog was assigned a mitral regurgitation s...
