Abstract

Cardiomyopathies are primary myocardial disorders, genetically determined, with clinical onset between the third and the fifth decade of life. They represent the main causes of sudden cardiac death and heart failure in the youth. The more common myocardial diseases in clinical practice are dilated cardiomyopathy, arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Next generation sequencing techniques, recently available for genetics researches, together with the diffusion of advanced imaging techniques, permitted in the last years a deeper knowledge of these pathologies. Nevertheless, diagnosis, etiology and several aspects of patients’ clinical management remain complex and controversial. This review paper aims to propose some operative flow-charts, derived from scientific evidences and the internal protocol of the Cardiothoracovascular Department of Trieste Hospital, Italian referral Center for cardiomyopathies and heart failure, with more than 30 years of experience in diagnosis and management of patients who suffer from primary myocardial disorders.
