BACKGROUND Despite advances in survival in patients with thalassemia major (TM) the most common cause of death is cardiac disease. Regular cardiac follow-up is imperative in order to identify and reverse pathology. Cardiac Magnetic Resonance (CMR) and Echocardiography (US) are applied in parallel to TM patients for cardiac evaluation and ongoing monitoring… CONTINUE READING
