Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Although the long term prognosis of patients with dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) remains poor, approximately 25 % of DCM patients with recent onset of heart failure (< 6 months) have a relatively benign clinical course with a spontaneously improvement in symptoms and partial, or in some cases complete, recovery of left ventricular (LV) function. Despite the longstanding recognition of the clinical phenomenon of LV recovery, relatively little attention has been paid to the etiology and natural history of this important group of DCM patients. Accordingly, in the present review we will focus on the epidemiology and natural history of recent onset DCM in patients who undergo spontaneous resolution of symptoms that is accompanied by recovery of LV function.
