Friedreich's ataxia (FRDA) is a neurodegenerative disorder resulting from deficiency of frataxin, characterized by cardiac hypertrophy associated with heart failure and sudden cardiac death. However, the relationship between remodeling and novel measures of cardiac function such as strain, and the time-dependent changes in these measures are poorly defined.
