New Insights into Cardiac Involvement in Juvenile Scleroderma: A Three-Dimensional Echocardiographic Assessment Unveils Subclinical Ventricle Dysfunction

Abstract

Cardiac manifestations in juvenile scleroderma or systemic sclerosis (JSSc) have poor prognosis, begin in early stages of the disease, and remain clinically asymptomatic. New echocardiography modalities, such as 2D/3D speckle tracking (STE, strain analysis for regional and global ventricular functions), can detect cardiac involvement in early stages. We… (More)
