OBJECTIVE Owing to its variable clinical course, risk stratification is of paramount importance in non-ischaemic dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM). The goal of this study was to investigate the long-term prognostic significance of late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) as detected by contrast-enhanced cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CE-CMR) in patients with DCM. DESIGN Observational cohort study. Setting University hospital. PATIENTS 184 consecutive patients with DCM. MEASUREMENTS CE-CMR was… CONTINUE READING
