Myocardial biopsy: its role in the understanding of Chagas' disease

Myocardial biopsy: its role in the understanding of Chagas' disease

Interciencia 13(6): 296-302

Myocardial biopsy is reviewed as a method of diagnosis and investigation of Chagas' disease. This technique is described and the relationships between the biopsy findings and the different phases of Chagas' disease are discussed.
