AbstractBACKGROUND: Free iron within cardiomyocytes may damage sarcomeric proteins with potential alteration of left ventricular (LV) torsional mechanics before changes in conventional indices of LV function. OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to test the hypothesis that LV torsional mechanics are altered in patients with beta-thalassaemia major and related to myocardial iron load. METHODS: We studied a cohort of 98 subjects, comprising 44 …
