Objective: Subclinical hypothyroidism (SH) is a mild form of thyroid failure, associated with initial signs of cardiovascular hypothyroidism. Tissue Doppler echocardiography (TDE) is a new and powerful method in evaluation of both regional and global systolic or diastolic ventricular function. We aimed to investigate the use of TDE in evaluation of cardiac effects of SH and affect of thyroid hormone replacement therapy (TRT) on tissue Doppler parameters of SH patients. Methods: Twenty-two… CONTINUE READING
