INTRODUCTION The aim of the study was to evaluate the role of apoptosis, proliferation markers, volume density of interstitium, and myofibril volume fraction for the prognosis in patients with end-stage dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM). METHODS Endomyocardial biopsy was performed during open-heart surgery in 56 patients with end-stage DCM. Patients were… CONTINUE READING
