BACKGROUND Patients with myotonic muscular dystrophy (DM) are at risk for atrioventricular block and left ventricular (LV) dysfunction. Noninvasive detection of diffuse myocardial fibrosis may improve disease management in this population. OBJECTIVE To define functional and postcontrast myocardial T1 time cardiac magnetic resonance characteristics in patients with DM. METHODS Thirty-three patients with DM (24 with type 1 and 9 with type 2) and 13 healthy volunteers underwent cardiac… CONTINUE READING
