Özet

OBJECTIVE: Crohn's disease (CD) is a chronic inflammatory bowel disease that can affect the entire gastrointestinal tract. Cardiac involvement is considered very rare. Pericarditis, myocarditis, endocarditis, cardiomyopathy and complete heart block are some of the cardiac extraintestinal manifestations of CD. The aim of this study was to explore the left ventricular (LV) functions with two-dimensional (2D) speckle tracking echocardiography (STE) in patients with CD with normal cardiac functions.
