Segmental analysis of left ventricular wall motion was performed in 80 patients with systemic sclerosis by echocardiography. Half of the cases showed normal wall motion. Eighteen of the 57 patients with limited cutaneous systemic sclerosis (31.6%) exhibited hypokinetic wall motion abnormalities, while five of the 23 cases with diffuse cutaneous systemic sclerosis (21.7%) had similar findings. The three cases showing akinesis also belonged to the limited scleroderma subgroup. Our findings show… CONTINUE READING
