Abstract

Cardiac interstitial amyloid of sufficient quantity to produce restrictive hemodynamics is usually manifested grossly by nondilated ventricles with increased ventricular wall thickness.1-3 We describe 2 patients with amyloid heart disease, primarily of the vascular rather than the interstitial type, in whom the left ventricular (LV) wall thickness was normal; the cavity was dilated in 1 patient.
