To determine whether immunosuppressive treatment improved cardiac function in patients with biopsy-proven myocarditis.
There is no specific treatment of acute myocarditis, especially during the inflammatory period. Interleukin (IL) is specifically involved during this period and play a role in myocardial o...
Acute myocarditis is a serious illness affecting a young population with a very variable course (of full recovery at the onset of dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM), or even sudden death). Very ...
Presentation of myocarditis is heterogeneous, often ranges from being asymptomatic, to chest pain, dyspnoea, palpitations, and even sudden cardiac death. Diagnosing myocarditis is challeng...
This is a retrospective cohort study to assess the clinical outcome of patients with fulminant myocarditis using "Life-support Based Comprehensive Treatment Regimen" and conventional thera...
Ventricular tachyarrhythmias (VTs) are often encountered in patients with inflammatory heart diseases. VT can become lifethreatening in patients with myocarditis, and the management may vary in differ...
Myocarditis is an inflammatory disease of the cardiac muscle mainly caused by viral infection. Due to the diverse clinical presentation of myocarditis, accurate diagnosis demands simultaneous histolog...
Fulminant myocarditis is a life-threatening clinical condition. It is the inflammation of myocardium leading to acute heart failure, cardiogenic shock and cardiac arrhythmias. Incidence of fulminant m...
The etiology of myocarditis in children has not yet been completely elucidated.
Giant cell myocarditis should be considered in all pediatric patients with refractory ventricular arrhythmia. Endomyocardial biopsy should be obtained to confirm the diagnosis of giant cell myocarditi...
The type species of CARDIOVIRUS causing encephalomyelitis and myocarditis in rodents, pigs, and monkeys. Infection in man has been reported with CNS involvement but without myocarditis.
Inflammatory processes of the muscular walls of the heart (MYOCARDIUM) which result in injury to the cardiac muscle cells (MYOCYTES, CARDIAC). Manifestations range from subclinical to sudden death (DEATH, SUDDEN). Myocarditis in association with cardiac dysfunction is classified as inflammatory CARDIOMYOPATHY usually caused by INFECTION, autoimmune diseases, or responses to toxic substances. Myocarditis is also a common cause of DILATED CARDIOMYOPATHY and other cardiomyopathies.
A 17-KDa cytoplasmic PEPTIDYLPROLYL ISOMERASE involved in immunoregulation. It is a member of the cyclophilin family of proteins that binds to CYCLOSPORINE.
A genus of the family PICORNAVIRIDAE causing encephalitis and myocarditis in rodents. ENCEPHALOMYOCARDITIS VIRUS is the type species.
A cyclic undecapeptide from an extract of soil fungi. It is a powerful immunosupressant with a specific action on T-lymphocytes. It is used for the prophylaxis of graft rejection in organ and tissue transplantation. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed).
