Reversal of cardiomyopathy in propionic acidemia after liver transplantation: a 10-year follow-up


Arrizza, Chiara; De Gottardi, Andrea; Foglia, Ezio; Baumgartner, Matthias; Gautschi, Matthias; Nuoffer, Jean-Marc (2015). Reversal of cardiomyopathy in propionic acidemia after liver transplantation: a 10-year follow-up. Transplant International, 28(12):1447-1450.

Abstract

Cardiomyopathy is a frequent complication in propionic acidemia. It is mostly rapidly fatal and independent of the metabolic control or medical intervention. Here, we present the reversal of a severe cardiomyopathy after liver transplantation in a patient with propionic acidemia and the long-term stability after ten years. Liver transplantation in patients with propionic acidemia may be considered a valid and long-lasting treatment when cardiomyopathy is progressive and unresponsive to medical therapy.
