BACKGROUND Heart failure occurs in 6% of hyperthyroid patients. Nonetheless, only half of those with hyperthyroidism-related heart failure have impaired left ventricular (LV) systolic function. Thus, diastolic dysfunction may play an important role in the pathogenesis. METHODS AND RESULTS We performed serial echocardiographic examinations in 70 consecutive patients with hyperthyroidism (39 ± 2 years, 47 women) to determine their diastolic function and repeated the examinations 6 months after… CONTINUE READING
