Early diagnostics of the cardiovascular breaches of patients with myotonic dystrophy

Abstract


According to the register of medical genetic consultation of Samara Regional Clinical Hospital M.I. Kalinin 89 patients with myotonic dystrophy are registered. A group of 24 patients between 15 and 20 years of age with the aim of early detection of changes in the cardiovascular system was selected and examined. In 75% of ECG changes in the form of conduction disturbances were registered. In 33,3% patients had changes on echocardiography. These changes can be assessed as subcompensated stage of cardiomyopathy.
