A case of biventricular endomyocardial fibrosis complicated by right ventricular outflow tract aneurysms
Endomyocardial fibrosis remains a major public health problem worldwide. It is a restrictive cardiomyopathy, of uncertain aetiology, which may lead to right, left or biventricular heart failure. Progress continues to be made in understanding the prevalence and natural history of this disease. Specific treatment, apart from surgery, remains suboptimal. We report a case of advanced, biventricular EMF complicated by right ventricular outflow tract aneurysms.
