Özet

Background: Histopathologically, progressive cardiac conduction disease (PCCD) is characterized by progressive fibrosis and sclerodegenerative changes in the proximal and distal conduction system of the heart. Therefore, we sought to determine the serum levels of myocardial collagen turnover markers, extracellular matrix components, transforming growth factor beta(1) (TGF beta(1)), and bone morphogenic protein-7 (BMP-7) in this population.
