  • Backgroud Idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) is the most frequent indication for orthotopic heart transplantation. It has been suggested that mutations in genes encoding desmosomal proteins, more typically associated with arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy, are a cause of DCM. Objectives To determine the frequency of desmosomal protein gene mutations in heart transplant recipients and their families and to examine histopathological characteristics of explanted organs from… CONTINUE READING
