Tenosynovial tissue biopsy at the time of carpal tunnel surgery can be a useful tool for detecting cardiac amyloidosis at an earlier stage, suggests a recent Cleveland Clinic study.
As a rare disease with a wide range of symptoms, Amyloidosis can be difficult for doctors to recognize. The disease presents itself differently depending on the type of Amyloidosis and which organs are affected. Delays in diagnosis are common, and some suffer for years while seeking answers. As a result, the road to diagnosis is often too long and winding, resulting in serious consequences for patients.
