JFMA 2020: A Multidisciplinary Conference on Amyloidosis in the French Language.
In the recent virtual Multidisciplinary French speaking day of Amyloidosis, SUDOSCAN® was presented and showcased its utility in detecting autonomic peripheral neuropathy in AA amyloidosis and wild-type cardiac amyloidosis. Amyloidosis is a rare disease caused by amyloid protein deposits in organs. During the congress, S. Deshayes from Caen Hospital and M. Kharoubi from Henri Mondor University Hospital presented studies on using SUDOSCAN® to detect autonomic neuropathy in AA amyloidosis and wild-type cardiac amyloidosis, respectively. The studies showed promising results in using SUDOSCAN® to monitor and manage these patients. The findings from the studies on wild-type cardiac amyloidosis emphasized the significance of SUDOSCAN® in daily cardiology practice, as it could help identify patients at a higher risk of poor outcomes and optimize their management and monitoring.
