AIMS To evaluate right ventricular function in patients with beta-thalassaemia major and congestive heart failure. Background In patients with beta-thalassaemia major a high incidence of cardiac involvement still exists despite improved prognosis with chelation therapy. Development of severe right heart failure is common and has been attributed to pulmonary hypertension secondary to lung haemochromatosis. However, the possibility of direct right ventricular myocardial involvement in the absence… CONTINUE READING
