Analysis of Echocardiograms in a Large Heterogeneous Cohort of Patients With Friedreich Ataxia

Although Friedreich ataxia (FA) is associated with cardiomyopathy, the severity and evolution of cardiac disease is poorly understood. To identify factors predicting cardiomyopathy in FA, we assessed echocardiograms from a large heterogenous cohort and their relation to disease traits. The most recent echocardiograms from 173 subjects with FA were analyzed in a core laboratory to determine their relation to disease duration, subject age, age of onset, functional disability score, and GAA repeat length.
