Description Among the haemoglobinopathies non-transfusion dependent thalassaemia (NTDT) are more common than the major patients. Bangladesh is located within the thalassaemia belt, moreover, Hb-E is prevalent here. So, the burden of non-transfusion dependent haemoglobinopathies is pretty massive. Due to less severe presentation and unawareness of general people, most patients with NTDT present with complications. On the other hand, cardiac complications are the major causes of death in these patients, and, negligence in early treatment increases the death. This review discusses haemoglobinopathies in general, followed by pathogenesis, clinical features and management of cardiac complications.
