Abstract

Introduction: Prolonging the life span of patients with hemophilia has led to the emergence of comorbidities. Cardiovascular diseases are one of the important causes of mortality in patients with hemophilia. This study investigated the myocardial functions, blood pressure changes, arterial stiffness, and risk factors associated with cardiovascular diseases in children with hemophilia.
