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.
Great talk, It would have been wonderful to explore some of the other causes of restrictive cardiomyopathy incl hemachromatosis, sarcoidosis etc.. Also i felt the indications for ICD therapy wasn't clear enough.
