Abstract

Purpose: The effects of epilepsy and seizures on cardiac functions have been documented, and this association has drawn attention in recent years. The aim of this study was to investigate left ventricle (LV) diastolic function by tissue Doppler imaging (TDI) in patients with newly diagnosed and untreated primary generalized epilepsy (PGE).
