Assessment of myocardial fibrosis and microvascular damage in systemic sclerosis (SSc) by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and coronary angiotomography.

 

The prevalence of myocardial fibrosis on MRI attributable to SSc is 45%, is more frequent and severe in diffuse scleroderma, is associated with lower left ventricular ejection fraction and affects mainly basal left ventricular walls. PubMed, Rheumatology (Oxford), 2014 Sep 18. (Also see: Diagnosis of Scleroderma Heart Involvement)

Wow! That's me, myocardial fibrosis! I don't actually know of any other person with scleroderma with this condition so, thanks Jo, for the article!

 

Take care.
