BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to determine right ventricular (RV) and right atrial (RA) deformation assessed by two-dimensional echocardiographic and three-dimensional echocardiographic (3DE) imaging in patients with prediabetes and type 2 diabetes mellitus. METHODS This cross-sectional study included 47 untreated normotensive subjects with prediabetes, 57 recently diagnosed normotensive patients with diabetes, and 54 healthy controls of similar sex and age distributions. All subjects… CONTINUE READING
