Progressive cardiac amyloidosis following liver transplantation for familial amyloid polyneuropathy: implications for amyloid fibrillogenesis.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Circulating transthyretin (TTR) is derived from the liver, and orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) is widely performed for variant TTR-associated familial amyloid polyneuropathy (FAP). The effect of OLT on FAP-related cardiac amyloid is of particular interest because wild-type TTR can itself be deposited as senile cardiac amyloid. METHODS… (More)
