Thyroid disorders are known to cause cardiac complications and increases risk of cardiac morbidity and mortality. This study aimed to identify echocardiographic changes in thyroid disorders. Methods: Data was examined from 90 patients by dividing into three groups having 30 patients in each group as hyperthyroid, hypothyroid and control group respectively. Echocardiography was done before initiation of therapy and after 12 weeks of therapy. Result: Diastolic dysfunction was seen in both

The flow velocities with hypercontractile heart (20%), pulmonary hypertension (20%), concentric LVH (10%), irregular rhythm and mild pericardial effusion (3.3%) in Hyperthyroid group. In Hypothyroid group pericardial effusion (23.3%), concentric LVH (23.3%), asymmetric hypertrophyof septum (3.3%), dilated LV (3.3%) was seen. All changes reverted significantly after 12 weeks of therapy and it was statistically significant (p<0.05). Conclusion: Early echocardiography in patients of thyroid disorders is helpful for early diagnosis of cardiac complications associated with it and timely prevention.
