  1. Descriptive epidemiology of idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy in Washington County, Maryland, 1975-1991.

    Article - En anglais

    Estimates of the incidence of idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy (IDC) were obtained by identifying cases from Washington County, Maryland who were hospitalized at local and regional hospitals over a recent 17 year period.

    All of the verified cases had evidence of ventricular dilatation and hypokinesis, with a left ventricular ejection fraction of less than 40%. A total of 26 cases were hospitalized over the period 1975-1991.

    The average age of the cases at the time of diagnosis was 55.5 years (range 22-80 years of age).

    About 58% of the subjects were males.

    A marked increase in newly diagnosed cases of IDC occurred in this population in recent years; 38% of the cases (10 of 26) were newly diagnosed during 1991 along.
