Many symptoms and clinical features have been proposed as prognostic factors for HUS in the short and long term, while the results of different studies have often been controversial. The aim of this study was to evaluate short-term and long-term(More)
Methods Ninety one eligible subjects undergoing cardiac structural and functional assessment with LGE-CMR and Doppler echocardiography were investigated. Left ventricular function, volumes, myocardial thickness, left atrial volume, wall motion score index (WMSI) and the extent of LGE were assessed using CMR.

Results RV function measured by CMR was negatively correlated with peak systolic strain of mid RV free wall (P=0.038, Pearson r=-0.357) and also negatively correlated to both mean of strain (P=0.028, Pearson r=-0.376) and SR (P=0.035, Spearman’s rho=-0.362) of basal , mid and apical segments of RV. Conclusions Overall, in the assessment of RV function ,(More)
