Increased atrial filling pressure and overstretch of the atrium in conditions such as congestive heart failure, valvular disorders, and hypervolemia may also cause prolonged conduction or unmask already slowed impulse transmission in the interatrial conduction pathways.
The researchers also quantified the elasticity of the left ventride by quantifying blood flow across the valve between the left atrium and the left ventricle, using the ratio between the early filling phase (vessel filling phase) and the atrial filling phase as a measure of diastolic heart function.

The left ventricle tends to become thicker, less compliant and increasingly dependent upon the contribution of atrial filling during late diastole [15].
