The disease is not widely known and its diagnosis mostly missed. METHODS AND RESULTS In seven out of a series of 34 patients with IVNC the in vivo echocardiographic characteristics were validated against the anatomical examination of the heart removed after death in four and due to heart transplantation in three patients… CONTINUE READING
