Diagnose myocardiopathies.

Immunoglobulins reacting to, or deposited in, muscle can be demonstrated in numerous rheumatic disorders. Sarcolemmal basement membrane, fibers, and vessels may all be involved, individually or in combination. Antimyocardial antibodies are found in the majority of patients who have received a coronary artery bypass. The clinical significance of this finding is uncertain. Antimyocardial antibodies may also be found in patients suffering from acute rheumatic fever.
