Most cardiomyopathies are idiopathic, or of unknown cause. Specific cases are usually categorized as dilated, hypertrophic, or restrictive, according to the observed abnormality. Dilated cardiomyopathy, the most common type of the disease, is characterized by an enlarged heart with stretching of the ventricle (lower chamber) and atrium (upper.

Dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) is traditionally referred to as idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy (IDC), which includes genetic forms of DCM. The patients present with a wide range of symptoms like dyspnea, orthopnea, paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea, arrhythmias or complications associated with DCM.

In the absence of transplantation, most people die within 5 years of diagnosis and death is usually due to end stage CHF. The only “curative” treatment is heart transplant.

Idiopathic cardiomyopathy: 1. cardiomyopathy of unknown or obscure cause; Synonym(s): idiopathic cardiomyopathy 2. a disease that affects mainly the heart muscle, sparing other cardiac structures and usually resulting in fibrosis, hypertrophy, or both.
Idiopathic Cardiomyopathy. Robert is a year old man who has started having some shortness of breath when walking. Suddenly the shortness of breath is accompanied by chest pain.
Cardiomyopathy is an anatomic and pathologic diagnosis associated with muscle or electrical dysfunction of the heart. Idiopathic cardiomyopathy book The American Heart Association (AHA) defines cardiomyopathy as a heterogeneous group of diseases of the myocardium, usually with inappropriate ventricular hypertrophy or dilatation.
1 There are various causes of cardiomyopathy, most of which are by: However, "hypertrophic cardiomyopathy" is the preferred expression for this condition. This nomenclature avoids the term "idiopathic subaortic stenosis" or inclusion of the word "obstructive", which imply left ventricular outflow tract obstruction (present in only 25% of.
Elton Migliati, in Stem Cell and Gene Therapy for Cardiovascular Disease, Models of Cardiotoxicity. Nonischemic cardiomyopathy contributes to approximately one third of all clinical HF cases. It has various underlying etiologies, including idiopathic, genetic, infectious, metabolic, iatrogenic, and toxic processes .Doxorubicin is widely used in modern cancer treatments, despite the.
Dilated cardiomyopathy is a condition in which the heart muscle becomes weakened and enlarged. As a result, the heart cannot pump enough blood to the rest of the body.
There are many types of cardiomyopathy. Dilated cardiomyopathy is the most common form. is a rapid access, point-of-care medical reference for primary care and emergency clinicians. Started inthis collection now contains interlinked topic pages divided into a tree of 31 specialty books and chapters.
The types of cardiomyopathy are discussed including dilated, restrictive, hypertrophic, non-compaction and ARVD. Cardiomyopathy - Definition and Summary | Main Menu. Dilated cardiomyopathy (also called idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy) is a condition in which the heart becomes weak and the chambers get large.
As a result, the heart cannot pump enough blood out to the body. It can be caused by many medical problems. Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is a condition in which the heart muscle becomes thick.
Dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) is a condition in which the heart becomes enlarged and cannot pump blood effectively. Symptoms vary from none to feeling tired, leg swelling, and shortness of breath. It may also result in chest pain or fainting. Complications can include heart failure, heart valve disease, or an irregular heartbeat.
Causes include genetics, alcohol, cocaine, certain toxins Complications: Heart failure, heart valve disease. Dilated Cardiomyopathy. Dilated Cardiomyopathy (DCM), also known as congestive cardiomyopathy, is the most common form of cardiomyopathy in children. About 50 to 60 percent of all pediatric cardiomyopathy cases are diagnosed as DCM, or approximately six out of every million children each year.
DCM is reportedly more common in boys than girls. ISBN: OCLC Number: Notes: "[Papers presented] at an International Symposium on Idiopathic Dilated Cardiomyopathy in Baden-Baden, Federal Republic of Germany, January February 1, "--Preface.
The latest developments in molecular biology have broadened our understanding of the pathogenesis of idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy (IDC). In this book, written by well-known experts, a comprehensive overview of IDC is given, including basic cellular and molecular concepts, virology, immunology, cardiac receptors and ionic channels, contractility abnormalities, microcirculation, and oxygen 2/5(1).
Restrictive cardiomyopathy is the least common type of cardiomyopathy Exact prevalence is not known Slightly more common in women (F:M ratio, ) More common in adults but can occur in any age group Prognosis is particularly poor in children and two year survival is less than 50%.
Cardiomyopathies () Definition (MEDLINEPLUS) Cardiomyopathy is the name for diseases of the heart muscle. These diseases enlarge your heart muscle or make it thicker and more rigid than normal. This book has been created for patients who have decided to make education and research an integral part of the treatment process.
Although it also gives information useful to doctors, caregivers and other health professionals, it tells patients where and how to look for information covering virtually all topics related to hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (also cardiomyopathy - hypertrophic 5/5(1). idiopathic cardiomyopathy.
Hello, I have been diagnosed with idiopathic cardiomyopathy. My EF is I walk 3 miles a day. I eat very well, no salt, no sugar. I am gluten and milk intolerant. I have food allergies. The doctors do not know why my left side of my heart is weak.
Objective Dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) is characterised by left ventricular dilation and dysfunction not caused by coronary disease, valvular disease or hypertension. Owing to the considerable aetiological and prognostic heterogeneity in DCM, an extensive diagnostic work-up is recommended.
We aimed to assess the value of diagnostic testing beyond careful physical examination, blood tests Cited by: 3. DCM is classified as idiopathic (idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy, or IDC) when all usual clinically detectable, except genetic, causes have been excluded.
Such detectable causes of DCM include ischemic DCM and a variety of toxic, metabolic, or infectious agents (see "Causes of dilated cardiomyopathy").
Introduction. Premature ventricular complexes (PVCs) in the absence of underlying structural heart disease have long been viewed as benign. Early studies with small population sizes and limited cardiac testing suggested that long-term prognosis in patients with idiopathic PVCs is similar to those in patients without other cardiac disease, and treatment was consequently limited to provide Author: Rakesh Latchamsetty.
Dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) is best understood as the final common response of myocardium to diverse genetic and environmental insults. A rigorous work-up can exclude alternative causes of left ventricular (LV) dilation and dysfunction, identify etiologies that may respond to specific treatments, and guide family screening.
A significant proportion of DCM cases have an underlying genetic or.Myocardial Oxygen Consumption in Patients with Idiopathic Dilated Cardiomyopathy: Effects of Vasodilating and Inotropic Agents Pages Holubarsch, Ch.
(et al.).The majority of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is idiopathic (>70%), whereas inborn errors of metabolism (e.g., Pompe disease), malformation syndromes (e.g., Noonan, Beckwith-Wiedemann syndromes), and children with neuromuscular disorders account for the remainder. Those who present as infants with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy have the worst.
