Aims Cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) has dramatically changed the clinical practice in thalassemia major (TM), lowering cardiac complications. We prospectively reassessed the predictive value of CMR parameters for heart failure (HF) and arrhythmias in TM. Methods and results We considered 481 white TM patients (29.48 ± 8.93 years, 263 females) enrolled in the Myocardial Iron Overload in Thalassemia (MIOT) network. Myocardial and liver iron overload were measured by T2* multiecho… CONTINUE READING
