Cardiomyopathy refers to anatomical and functional changes affecting the cardiac muscle. Cardiomyopathy results from many genetic causes or secondary diseases and leads to hypertrophy or dilatation of the heart. Heart failure and dysrhthmias will eventually develop due to abnormal contractility or electrical activity.
This lecture reviews cardiomyopathy and related pathology.
Covered the most important parts of DCM in a very short time period. The teaching is top-notch!
class has very low value. no practice, poor application to boards. may be if i was going to write a book could be valuable but not for pt. treatment nor use useful for boards.
Very good concepts are explained in these lectures. Classification is explained well in the first lecture with a flow diagram.
The use of tips for practicing, diagrams alongside the lecture and having a patient present made this interesting and easy to remember.
