Aortic regurgitation is common in ankylosing spondylitis - time for routine echocardiography evaluation?

 

As aortic regurgitation and/ or conduction abnormalities might cause insidious symptoms, both electrocardiography and echocardiography evaluation should be part of the routine management of patients with ankylosing spondylitis. PubMed, Am J Med, 06/04/2015. (Also see Ankylosing Spondylitis and Diagnosis of Heart Involvement)
