Morphological Analysis of Myocardial Biopsies Correlated to Different Types of Heart Disease
Since we started routinely using the endomyocardial biopsy method described by Konno and Sakakibara (1963) in cardiological investigations, we have been interested in evaluating its clinical usefulness. In an attempt to correlate clinical findings to histologic changes, myocardial tissues from patients with different types of heart disease were investigated.
