Improvement of Cardiac Diastolic Function and Prognosis After Autologous Peripheral Blood Stem Cell Transplantation in AL Cardiac Amyloidosis
Internal medicine (Tokyo. 1992)
AL amyloidosis is a disease in which immunoglobulin L chain is deposited in multiple organs, and the prognosis of cardiac amyloidosis is extremely poor. Although several treatments based on that for multiple myeloma, have been performed, there is no clear evidence that cardiac function is improved. We report a case of AL cardiac amyloidosis with moderate cardiac dysfunction for which we performed autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplantation (auto-PBSCT) in combination with high-dosedoi:10.2169/internalmedicine.46.0142 pmid:17938525 fatcat:bqmokrogwja4zhxasu7e2rryzi
