  • A clinico-pathological study was carried out based on 38 autopsies of patients with endocardial fibroelastosis ( EFE ): 82% of the cases were below the age of one year [16].
  • Paraffin sections of autopsied hearts with endocardial fibroelastosis were stained with polyclonal antibodies against human alpha-ANP [17].
