Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy—enhanced discussion of genetic causes; comments on early features of disease (ECG changes, diastolic dysfunction, markers of collagen synthesis); recommendations for use of implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) devices.
Dilated cardiomyopathy—comments on the presence of an abnormally cleaved prolactin in some patients with peripartum cardiomyopathy, with possible implications for treatment.
