About this item

This is the third in a series of webinars, made possible through an unrestricted grant from Pfizer, Inc., involving a team of specialized physicians to provide education on the early diagnosis, treatment, and management of cardiac amyloidosis. There is an increasing appreciation that this disease is more prevalent than previously thought and there are newer therapies for the treatment which are important to consider in patient care. In this learning activity, challenging cases will be shared with experts to shed light on the complex issues in this disease and the role of echocardiography.
