  • Amyloidosis

    The treatment of AL cardiac amyloidosis is discussed below.[circ.ahajournals.org] If you have been diagnosed with cardiac amyloidosis or suspect you might have it, specialists at NYU Langone’s Cardiac Amyloidosis Program can provide expert care to manage[nyulangone.org] Diagnosing Cardiac Amyloidosis Because cardiac amyloidosis is uncommon, and the early symptoms may be nonspecific, there is often a delay in making the diagnosis.[circ.ahajournals.org]

    Abstract Cardiac amyloidosis is an infiltrative cardiomyopathy with a grave prognosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Katus and Alexander Bauer, Prophylactic implantation of cardioverter-defibrillator in patients with severe cardiac amyloidosis and high risk for sudden cardiac death, Heart[doi.org] However, other types of amyloidosis are increasingly recognized, such as familial amyloidosis and senile cardiac amyloidosis, and management of these conditions is different[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Systemic Amyloidosis

    Echocardiography remains the most important tool for assessing cardiac amyloidosis but cardiac magnetic resonance imaging is becoming increasingly valuable.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] BACKGROUND: Cardiac amyloidosis confers significantly worse prognosis in patients with systemic amyloidosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Vigilant screening for intracardiac thrombus by trans-oesophageal echocardiography may be indicated in patients with AL type of cardiac amyloidosis.[bjcardio.co.uk]
