Early Detection of Cardiac Involvement in Systemic Sclerosis (SSc) Assessed by Tissue-Doppler Echocardiography: Relationship with Neurohormonal Activation and Endothelial Dysfunction. Depressed cardiac function is common, even in asymptomatic patients with SSc. NT-proBNP and ADMA are significantly correlated with echocardiographic abnormalities, providing a potent link for cardiac function, neuroendocrine derangement, and endothelial dysfunction in patients with SSc who have cardiac disease. Theodoros Dimitroulas. JRheum. March 1, 2010. (Also see: Diagnosis of Heart Involvement)
