Dilated cardiomyopathy in Friedreich's ataxia: 2D echo and tissue-Doppler analysis of left ventricular and atrial function.

Abstract

Friedreich’s ataxia (FA) is a hereditary spinocerebellar degenerative disease characterised clinically by ataxia, dysarthria, skeletal deformities, and progressive dystrophia of the skeletal muscles. The disease is frequently associated with concentric and, in some cases, eccentric hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Presentation of a dilated cardiomyopathy with… (More)
