Abstract
Background: Adverse cardiovascular effect of hypothyroidism has been identified in many studies. Early identification of patients with sub-clinical hypothyroidism may lead to early treatment and thereby favourable effect on cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Objectives: To find out the association of sub clinical hypothyroidism and left ventricular dysfunction and also to find out relationship between systolic and diastolic dysfunction in these patients. Material and Methods: A total 30 cases of sub clinical hypothyroidism along with 15 age sex matched healthy control subjects were included in study. Serum TSH, T4, T3 hormone level was measured and those who were found to have sub-clinical hypothyroidism underwent for 2DEcho. Results: Significant reduction in peak early filling velocity (PE) (p [Acta Inform Med 2012; 20(4.000): 218-220]
