INTRODUCTION Chagas' disease can lead to severe and potentially lethal damage of cardiac function. Thus, the identification of cardiac abnormalities in patients presenting the indeterminate form (IF) can be important for risk stratification. This paper aimed to demonstrate whether IF chagasic patients who presented wall motion abnormalities showed functional and electric disturbances compared to patients with normal echocardiogram and Doppler studies. METHODS Thirty eight patients with the IF… CONTINUE READING
