Beitrag des CDT-Wertes zur Differenzialdiagnose der alkoholischen und der idiopathischen Kardiomyopathie

Die alkoholische Kardiomyopathie kann durch echokardiographische und invasive Methoden nicht von der idiopathischen Kardiomyopathie unterschieden werden. Ebenso eignet sich die Alkoholanamnese nur bedingt zur Diagnosenstellung. In dieser Arbeit wurden Patienten, einerseits anhand des CDT-Markers un...
