Metabolic Cardiomyopathy of Childhood

  • Enid Gilbert-Barness


The cardiomyopathies are a group of disorders characterized by an intrinsic decrease in myocardial contractility. As long as stroke volume is maintained, congestive heart failure does not occur. However, when stroke volume falls, congestive heart failure ensues.1,2
