What is the relation between hypothyroidism and myocardial contraction??
Dr. N●●●●l S●●●●●●●m
There is a decrease in the myocardial contraction with hypothyroidism leading to decreased cardiac output. This could be due to increase in afterload or decreased expression of genes related to myocardial calcium regulation. Hence there is a decrease in the rate of ventricular diastolic relaxation, leading to decreased compliance and diastolic filling.
