Cardiac Amyloidosis

Amyloidosis is a condition in which an abnormal protein (amyloid) deposits in organs of the body. There are different types of amyloid, and the treatment approach depends on which type of amyloid an individual has. Some types of amyloid can affect the heart (cardiac amyloidosis), and can lead to problems such as heart failure and heart rhythm abnormalities.
