Abstract

Objective: Behcet's disease is characterized by increased inflammatory activity, and there there might be an increased risk of atrial arrhythmia in patients with this disease. Our study is aimed to evaluate a novel method of measuring atrial electromechanical features. expressed as interatrial and intraatrial electromechanical delay by tissue Doppler echocardiography in patients with Behcet's disease.
