    Good talk more discussions on treatment indication
    By Hamed S. on 18. February 2017 for Cardiomyopathy

    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.
