Introduction: Cardiac disease called acromegalic cardiomyopathy may be present in patients with acromegaly at diagnosis, however most echocardiographic studies showed that systolic function, measured by ejection fraction (EF), in these patients is normal. Speckle tracking echocardiography (STE) is a novel method that allows for the study of global longitudinal strain (GLS), a marker of early and subclinical left ventricular (LV) systolic dysfunction. Some studies show subclini...
