Abstract

Objectives: Sarcoidosis is an inflammatory granulomatous disease of unknown cause that involves multiple organ systems. Myocardial involvement is usually associated with poor prognosis, but diagnosis of cardiac sarcoidosis is frequently difficult. The aim of this study was to investigate the atrial conduction time in patients with sarcoidosis by using high-usefulness tissue Doppler echocardiography.
