Aims and objectives: Diabetes mellitus is one of the most common chronic diseases. Several epidemiological studies have consistently reported diabetes as a strong risk factor for the development of cardiovascular diseases. Diabetes inflicts a direct insult to the myocardium, with cellular, structural and functional chan[...]

Methods and materials: Study design: Prospective analytical case control study.   The study was conducted from July 2013 to August 2015 at our institution. Asymptomatic normotensive non CAD diabetic patients were compared to age matched asymptomatic normotensive non CAD non-diabetic individuals for the evaluation of [...]

Results: A total of 15 normotensive diabetic patients were included in the study as cases. The mean age was 48.20 ± 9.283 years. Table 1   Table 1 shows the baseline characteristics of the study population for both Diabetics and non-diabetics. None of the values show significant difference except for[...]

Conclusion: There is a high prevalence of LV diastolic dysfunction with preserved systolic function in asymptomatic diabetic patients. MDCT has the potential to meet the present need for a robust tool that can establish diagnostic efficacy in future studies and thus, should be used to identify (pre-) diabetic i[...]
