Cardiac troponin T Arg92Trp mutation and progression from hypertrophic to dilated cardiomyopathy.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Mutations in the cardiac troponin T gene causing familial hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) are associated with a very poor prognosis but only mild hypertrophy. To date, the serial morphologic changes in patients with HCM linked to cardiac troponin T gene mutations have not been reported. HYPOTHESIS The aim of this study was to determine the… (More)
