Abstract

The technique of endomyocardial catheter biopsy (EMCB) was described as early as 1962 by Sakakibara and Konno [22]. In the following years biopsy material was studied for diagnostic reasons mostly by use of light microscopy, which revealed specific findings only in rare cases (e. g. sarcoidosis and myocarditis). Furthermore, publications about biopsies consisted primarily of case reports and information about technical problems or modifications of the original Konno bioptome [10, 12].
