Myocarditis Risks in Children and Young Adults
Dr. Malone interview of Pediatric Cardiologist Dr. Kirk Milhoan, MD on the risk of myocarditis in children and young adults.
Dr. Kirk Milhoan, MD:
“A recent study on elite athletes out of the Big 10 showed that when they looked at the cardiac MRI of the elite athletes, around 50% had myocarditis that wasn’t known by symptoms but was seen on cardiac MRI.
That puts them at risk for sudden death.”
