Echocardiographic follow-up of patients with systemic sclerosis (SSc) by 2D speckle tracking echocardiography (STE) of the left ventricle (LV).

 

STE might be a sensititive and valuable method to detect early LV systolic impairment in patients with SSc and preserved LV ejection fraction during two years and prospective evaluations are needed for prognostic implications of these changes.
