Left atrial (LA) dysfunction detected by speckle tracking in patients with systemic sclerosis (SSc).

 

2D speckle-tracking echocardiography is a sensitive tool to assess impairment of LA mechanics, and may represent an early sign of cardiac involvement in patients with systemic sclerosis. PubMed, Cardiovasc Ultrasound, 2014 Aug 5;12(1):30. (Also see: Diastolic Dysfunction)
