Cardiac remodelling identified by cardiovascular magnetic resonance in patients with hepatitis C infection and liver disease
Abstract Chronic cardiac dysfunction in patients with chronic liver disease (CLD) in the absence of alcohol consumption or other cardiac disease is well described. Whilst functional and morphological features of this condition remain unclear, diastolic dysfunction has been implicated by echocardiography. We aimed to evaluate myocardial structure, function and tissue composition with cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging in patients with hepatitis C and histological evidence of liver disease on biopsy. Contrast-enhanced CMR imaging for morphological, functional and tissue characterization was performed on 16 pat...
