Type 2 diabetes is strongly associated with the occurrence of cardiovascular diseases, especially heart failure. Some studies have suggested that subclinical systolic dysfunction as assessed by tissue Doppler imaging (TDI) is already present in uncomplicated diabetic patients with normal left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF). Considering the importance of this aspect, the aim of this cross-sectional study was to examine the relationship between glycated hemoglobin and mean s' wave velocity (a reliable measure of early LV systolic dysfunction) in a cohort of type 2 diabetic outpatients with preserved LVEF and without ischemic heart disease.
