T1 mapping by cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) is able to determine the extracellular volume fraction. Wild-type transthyretin amyloidosis (WT-ATTR) is characterized by extracellular amyloid deposition in the heart. Recent reports indicated a reduction of left ventricular (LV) myocardial mass in WT-ATTR after consumption of epigallocatechin-3-gallate, the main catechin in green tea. It remained unclear, whether reduction of LV myocardial mass reflects decrease of amyloid load or… CONTINUE READING
