Özet

Objectives: Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is an autoimmune disorder resulting in multisystemic inflammatory damage. Recent articles report that 20% to 30% of deaths in patients with SLE have cardiovascular origin. The aim of this study was to investigate the atrial conduction time in patients with SLE by using high-usefulness tissue Doppler echocardiography (TDI).
