Özet

Purpose Although the hepatic and neurological consequences of Wilson's disease (WD) have been investigated in detail, its cardiac involvement remains little studied. Our aim was to investigate potential cardiac differences in strain (ST) and strain rate (STR) echocardiography in adult WD patients compared with controls.
