Abstract

The echocardiographic features of cardiomyopathies with predominant right ventricular involvement can be classified into two types, one of which is characterized by obviously dilated right ventricle with wall thinning and hypokinesia, and the other by obliterative changes in the apical trabecular region of the right ventricle with deformed right ventricular cavity, stiffened and thickened right ventricular wall with echo enhancement and normal pericardium. The echocardiographic characteristics are useful for the diagnosis of this disease.
