BACKGROUND Global ventricular function often remains normal in patients with beta-thalassemia major (β-TM) until late. Tissue Doppler and strain imaging may be useful to assess regional myocardial function abnormalities in these patients. METHODS Systolic (Sm), early diastolic (Em), and late diastolic (Am) (Em/Am) myocardial velocities at basal lateral and septal left ventricular (LV) segments, strain (S), and strain rate (SR) in basal and mid LV, right ventricular (RV) and septum were… CONTINUE READING
