Background: Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a group of inflammatory diseases that occur with excessive immune response against various antigens or environmental factors in sensitive individuals. Atrial electro-mechanic delay (EMD) was suggested as an early marker of atrial fibrillation in previous studies. The objectives of this study were to evaluate atrial electromechanical properties measured by tissue doppler imaging and simultaneous electrocardiography (ECG) tracing in patients with inflammatory bowel disease.
