BACKGROUND AND AIM OF STUDY Iron overload contributes to cardiac dysfunction in patients with beta thalassemia (Th). Tissue velocity and strain imaging (TVI and SI) might prove useful in early detection of regional myocardial dysfunction in these patients. The aim of this study is to clarify the value of TVI and SI in early detection of regional myocardial dysfunction in thalassemia patients. METHODS AND RESULTS This study included two age-matched groups; G1: 27 Th patients and G2: 14 normal… CONTINUE READING
