BACKGROUND Prognosis in light-chain (AL) and transthyretin (ATTR) amyloidosis is influenced by cardiac involvement. ATTR amyloidosis has better prognosis than AL amyloidosis despite more amyloid infiltration, suggesting additional mechanisms of damage in AL amyloidosis. OBJECTIVES The aim of the study was to assess the presence and prognostic significance of myocardial edema in patients with amyloidosis.
