SURGICAL: Heart Transplant l\^yocarditis describes the infiltration of myocardial cells by various forms of bacteria or viruses that damage the myocardium by inciting an inflammatory response. The actual incidence of myocarditis is unknown; many people are asymptomatic or have symptoms that may not be attributed to myocarditis. For this reason, a significant number of otherwise unexplained sudden deaths in young people and following childbirth may actually be due to the condition.

Myocarditis results in white blood cell (WBC) infiltration and necrosis of myocytes (heart muscle cells). Although myocarditis commonly is self-limiting, mild, and asymptomatic, it sometimes induces myofibril degeneration, which leads to right- and left-sided heart failure. When myocarditis recurs, it can produce chronic valvulitis (usually when it results from rheumatic fever), dysrhythmias, thromboembolism, or cardiomyopathy.
