The cardiac Fabry disease are early, frequent and severe, dominated by the frequency of left ventricular hypertrophy. They are responsible for a high morbidity and mortality, reducing life expectancy of 15 to 20 years for men. Fabry disease and heart attacks are still diagnosed late. This delay in diagnosis is due to the non-specificity of clinical, electrocardiographic and echocardiographic disease, but also by a certain ignorance of this pathology in the medical community. The importance of early diagnosis of Fabry disease and heart disease is well established: enzyme replacement therapy is most effective when instituted early, before the onset of irreversible damage such as fibrosis. With the blotter, we now have a simple and robust screening tool for Fabry disease, achievable consultation. Targeted educational interventions to physicians have shown their effectiveness in improving the screening and diagnosis of rare diseases. We offer a prospective observational type before / after study, which aims to assess the value of an educational brochure for cardiologists to improve the screening and diagnosis of Fabry disease in Normandy.

Some authors have hypothesized that left ventricular chamber dilatation in ischaemic and idiopathic cardiomyopathies results in spherical transformation. Aiming to characterize how this transformation...
Infiltrative cardiomyopathies are characterized by abnormal accumulation or deposition of substances in cardiac tissue leading to cardiac dysfunction. These can be inherited, resulting from mutations ...
A group of diseases in which the dominant feature is the involvement of the CARDIAC MUSCLE itself. Cardiomyopathies are classified according to their predominant pathophysiological features (DILATED CARDIOMYOPATHY; HYPERTROPHIC CARDIOMYOPATHY; RESTRICTIVE CARDIOMYOPATHY) or their etiological/pathological factors (CARDIOMYOPATHY, ALCOHOLIC; ENDOCARDIAL FIBROELASTOSIS).
Deficiencies or mutations in the genes for the SARCOGLYCAN COMPLEX subunits. A variety of phenotypes are associated with these mutations including a subgroup of autosomal recessive limb girdle muscular dystrophies, cardiomyopathies, and respiratory deficiency.
Diabetes complications in which VENTRICULAR REMODELING in the absence of CORONARY ATHEROSCLEROSIS and hypertension results in cardiac dysfunctions, typically LEFT VENTRICULAR DYSFUNCTION. The changes also result in myocardial hypertrophy, myocardial necrosis and fibrosis, and collagen deposition due to impaired glucose tolerance.
Enlargement of the HEART, usually indicated by a cardiothoracic ratio above 0.50. Heart enlargement may involve the right, the left, or both HEART VENTRICLES or HEART ATRIA. Cardiomegaly is a nonspecific symptom seen in patients with chronic systolic heart failure (HEART FAILURE) or several forms of CARDIOMYOPATHIES.
A mitochondrial disorder featuring the triad of chronic progressive EXTERNAL OPHTHALMOPLEGIA, cardiomyopathy (CARDIOMYOPATHIES) with conduction block (HEART BLOCK), and RETINITIS PIGMENTOSA. Disease onset is in the first or second decade. Elevated CSF protein, sensorineural deafness, seizures, and pyramidal signs may also be present. Ragged-red fibers are found on muscle biopsy.

Enzymes are proteins that catalyze (i.e., increase the rates of) chemical reactions. In enzymatic reactions, the molecules at the beginning of the process, called substrates, are converted into different molecules, called products. Almost all chemical re...
