Prävalenz und Verlauf unterschiedlicher Ätiologien bei Patienten mit klinischem Verdacht auf Kardiomyopathie in den Jahren 2000 – 2008

Ziel der Arbeit ist die Untersuchung der Prävalenz viraler bzw. entzündlicher Ätiologien, davon abhängig den Krankheitsverlauf bei Patienten mit klinischem Verdacht auf Kardiomyopathie und den Effekt einer spezifischen, kausal orientierten Therapie. Grundlage dazu bilden Daten von 1.710 Patienten, d...
