• forms of myocarditis
  • The specific treatment (i.e. treatment other than measures to support the cardiovascular system) of eosinphilic myocarditis differs from the specific treatment of other forms of myocarditis in that it focus on relieving the underling reason for the excessively high numbers and hyperactivity of eosinophils as well as on inhibiting the pathological actions of these cells.

  • active myocarditis
  • 10 Active myocarditis is characterized by an inflammatory cellular infiltrate with evidence of myocyte necrosis ( Figure 1 ), whereas borderline myocarditis demonstrates an inflammatory cellular infiltrate without evidence of myocyte injury ( Figure 2 ). (ahajournals.org)
  • Although their findings are interesting and the association of HCV infection with chronic active myocarditis may be true, controversial issues still exist that should be carefully addressed before drawing a final conclusion. (ahajournals.org)
  • We appreciate the comments of Drs Kao and Hwang regarding the reverse-transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) we used for genomic analysis of hepatitis C virus (HCV) R1 in 3 patients with chronic active myocarditis. (ahajournals.org)

  • heterogeneous
  • 8 The wide variety of etiologies implicated in myocarditis and its heterogeneous clinical presentations 5,7,9 have impeded patient identification and consensus on the most appropriate diagnostic criteria. (ahajournals.org)
  • findings
  • On the basis of the histologie findings and molecular biology study results, myocarditis was treated with prednisome for a short period (1 mg/kg/d 4for 4 days tapered to 0.33 mg/kg/d for the following 4 days) in order to limit a possible worsening of psychosis. (redorbit.com)

  • Intravenous
  • Therefore, fluid restriction and diuretics, inotropic support to optimize contractility with continuous intravenous (IV) inotropic agents, and IV vasodilator agents, are all important potential interventions for CHF caused by myocarditis of a nonviral origin. (medscape.com)
  • Giant
  • Giant cell myocarditis is a rare disorder characterized pathologically by the presence of a mixed inflammatory infiltrate containing lymphocytes, plasma cells, macrophages, and eosinophils along with numerous giant cells. (ahajournals.org)
