AbstractAim: To evaluate the role of Electrocardiographic, USG and Echocardiography in hypothyroidism
Material and methods: All patients were subjected to a detailed clinical history, clinical examination, and blood investigation including blood group, complete blood count, renal function test, liver function test, thyroid function test, ECG, 2D echo, and USG neck after obtaining informed written consent and clearance from the institutional scientific and ethical committee. The current gold standard for care calls for a TSH assay of the third generation. Automated platforms using state-of-the-art immunometric assays were used to conduct the TSH testing.
Results: The severity of hypothyroidism ranged from moderate (48.75%) to severe (31.25%) to mild (20%). Sinus bradycardia (32.5%) was the most prevalent ECG abnormality, followed by ST-T alterations (21.25%), while 21.25 % of patients had normal ECGs. USG neck was normal in 26.25% patients. Among abnormal USG , thyroiditis constitute 31.25% and was the most common usg neck finding in the study population. 2D ECHO finding was normal in 27.5% patients. Among abnormal 2D echo reports, diastolic dysfunction constitute 37.5% of the study population and was the most common 2D echo finding in the study population.
Conclusion: The findings of this research highlight the significance of assessing individuals with primary hypothyroidism for cardiovascular abnormalities, which might lead to timely therapies that enhance clinical outcomes.
