The aim of present study is to evaluate left ventricular (LV) functions using speckle tracking echocardiography (STE) after iron therapy in patients with iron deficiency anemia (IDA). We consecutively enrolled 92 patients with IDA who needed iron therapy and 82 age- and gender-matched healthy volunteers in our study. Their clinical, laboratory, conventional two-dimensional echocardiography (2DE), and STE examinations were performed to all patients before and after iron therapy. Echocardiographic measurements were compared with healthy controls. The hemoglobin level increased after iron therapy (7.2±2.9 vs. 12.1±2.0, p
