Cardiomyopathy is one of the most frequent causes of heart failure, and a leading entity of cardiac transplantation in the era of modern heart failure regimens. This volume focuses on major advances in inflammatory cardiomyopathy (DCMi) during the past 10 years.

The book is divided up into the following sections: 1. Myocarditis and inflammatory cardiomyopathy – clinical management, epidemiology and prognosis; 2. Animal Models of myocarditis – autoimmunity and viral infection and therapeutic interventions; 3. Alterations of the immune system in human viral and inflammatory cardiomyopathy; 4. Diagnostic concepts of inflammatory and viral cardiomyopathy in endomyocardial biopsies (EMBs) including cardiac magnetic resonance; 5. Conventional and immunomodulatory treatment strategies in inflammatory cardiomyopathy patients.

An international group of authors discusses topics as the histological Dallas criteria for clinical diagnostics, emerging relevance of immunohistological detection of DCMi and detectability of viruses in EMBs, and epidemiology and standard clinical treatment of acute myocarditis and dilated cardiomyopathy patients.

This volume serves as a valuable source for cardiologists and cardiovascular pathologists to update their knowledge on DCMi, a still enigmatic and fascinating cardiovascular disorder, which has made major steps from bench to bedside in the past decade.
