Scope note: Grupo de enfermedades cardíacas en las que el rasgo dominante es la afectación del propio MÚSCULO CARDIACO. Las miocardiopatías se clasifican de acuerdo a sus rasgos fisiopatológicos predominantes (MIOCARDIOPATÍA DILATADA, MIOCARDIOPATÍA HIPERTRÓFICA, MIOCARDIOPATÍA RESTRICTIVA) o sus factores etiológicos y anatomopatológicos (MIOCARDIOPATÍA ALCOHÓLICA, FIBROELASTOSIS ENDOCÁRDICA).

Scope note: A group of diseases in which the dominant feature is the involvement of the CARDIAC MUSCLE itself. Cardiomyopathies are classified according to their predominant pathophysiological features (DILATED CARDIOMYOPATHY; HYPERTROPHIC CARDIOMYOPATHY; RESTRICTIVE CARDIOMYOPATHY) or their etiological/pathological factors (CARDIOMYOPATHY, ALCOHOLIC; ENDOCARDIAL FIBROELASTOSIS).
