OBJECTIVE To evaluate left ventricular function in newborn infants of mothers with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM). METHODS Forty newborn infants of mother with GDM (GDM group) and forty normal newborn infants (control group) were enrolled in this study. Two-dimensional speckle tracking imaging was used to measure interventricular septal thickness, posterior left ventricular wall thickness and left ventricular ejection fraction in both groups. Left ventricular rotation and torsion were… CONTINUE READING
