Prompt diagnosis is key to heart disease in cats The other form of cardiomyopathy
is DCM that is caused by stretching of the heart muscle.
We would urge anyone with symptoms of cardiomyopathy
or a family history to speak to their GP.
-broken-heart-syndrome) Harvard Health Publishing , the publishing division of the Harvard Medical School of Harvard University, "Takotsubo cardiomyopathy
is a weakening of the left ventricle, the heart's main pumping chamber, usually as the result of severe emotional or physical stress, such as a sudden illness, the loss of a loved one, a serious accident, or a natural disaster such as an earthquake.
Conclusion: The frequency of patients with cardiomyopathy
having positive T wave alternans was significantly higher as compared to the healthy controls.
Here we report a case of severe post-ductal coarctation of aorta presenting like dilated cardiomyopathy
We would like to highlight that a clinician must be careful about serum calcium levels in cases with cardiomyopathy
gestational hypertension, and more severe forms of preeclampsia, HELLP syndrome (the haemolysis, elevated liver enzyme levels, and low platelet levels) and peripartum cardiomyopathy
(PPCM) may induce cardiovascular disease.
In none of the patients examined was there evidence (from the clinical presentation, past medical history, family history, physical examination, laboratory data, or echocardiographic findings) to suggest that there were other possible causes of heart failure, including congenital heart disease, familial cardiomyopathy
, severe valvular heart disease, tachycardia-induced cardiomyopathy
, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy
, and ischemic heart disease.
Collated data from 33,343 Americans who were hospitalized with stress cardiomyopathy
between 2003 and 2011 showed that marijuana users were almost twice as likely to develop the disease than non-users.
Our case describes an unusual presentation of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy
Signs and symptoms of peripartum cardiomyopathy
may present as early as the 17th week of gestation and a practitioner may review these with her patient early in her pregnancy.
After diuresis an echo-Doppler study and cardiac catheterization confirm a dilated cardiomyopathy
primarily involving the left-sided chambers, a left ventricular ejection fraction of 20% and moderate mitral and tricuspid regurgitation.
The disease takes several forms: hypertrophic cardiomyopathy
, where the walls of the heart are thick; restrictive, where the walls are stiff; dilated, where there is thinning and weakening of the heart muscle, and arrhythmogenic right ventricular, where fat and scar tissue replace heart muscle, primarily in the right side of the heart.
com)-- The global dilated cardiomyopathy
therapeutics market is estimated to reach USD 300 Million in 2020, declining at a CAGR of 6.
