Cardiac complications are considered to be the primary cause of death in patients with beta thalassaemia major. QT dispersion is a marker variability of ventricular repolarization and is elevated in various high risk groups of patients. This study was carried out in patients with beta thalassaemia major to evaluate QT dispersion and to investigate the(More)
Cardiac manifestations of pediatric systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) usually occur as an initial manifestation of the disease or within six months after the diagnosis of SLE. Pericarditis is the most frequent cardiac manifestation of SLE, but pericardial effusion causing tamponade, which has a very serious prognosis, rarely occurs, and it is even less(More)

OBJECTIVE Cardiac complication is one of the major causes of death in patients with thalassaemia major. Heart rate variability is a non-invasive index of neuronal modulation of heart rate. In this study, autonomic functions of the heart in a preclinical stage of heart disease were evaluated in 48 thalassaemic patients with time domain heart rate variability(More)
OBJECTIVES Increased iron stores have been implicated in the association with increased risk of cardiovascular events. We evaluated whether the abdominal aortic stiffness was altered in the patients with beta-thalassemia major in relation with body iron load. METHODS Sixty-two (32 males and 30 females) beta-thalassemia major patients aged 16.47 +/- 4.8(More)
