Cardiomyopathy

  • Cardiomyopathy

    Patho physiology: Cardiomyopathy refers to diseases of the heart muscle. These diseases have many causes, signs and symptoms, and treatments.In cardiomyopathy, the heart muscle becomes enlarged, thick, or rigid. In rare cases, the muscle tissue in the heart is replaced with scar tissue.As cardiomyopathy worsens, the heart becomes weaker. It's less able to pump blood through the body and maintain a normal electrical rhythm. This can lead to heart failure or irregular heartbeats called arrhythmias. In turn, heart failure can cause fluid to build up in the lungs, ankles, feet, legs, or abdomen.The weakening of the heart also can cause other complications, such as heart valve problems.

    Treatment: People who have cardiomyopathy but no signs or symptoms may not need treatment. Sometimes, dilated cardiomyopathy that comes on suddenly may go away on its own. For other people who have cardiomyopathy, treatment is needed. Treatment depends on the type of cardiomyopathy you have, the severity of your symptoms and complications, and your age and overall health. Treatments may include: Heart-healthy lifestyle changes, Medicines, Nonsurgical procedure, Surgery and implanted devices. The main goals of treating cardiomyopathy include: • Controlling signs and symptoms so that you can live as normally as possible • Managing any conditions that cause or contribute to the disease • Reducing complications and the risk of sudden cardiac arrest • Stopping the disease from getting worse

  • Cardiomyopathy

    Research: Prevalence and Disease Outcome: because recognition of inherited disease is often limited by practice patterns which are in turn heavily influenced by the urgent demands of caring for sick patients, an important proportion of inherited disease is misdiagnosed. As an example, we discovered that nearly 25% of patients undergoing heart transplant for end stage cardiomyopathy have inherited disease, whereas current recognition of inherited disease in this population is limited to 4% of patients. This research was presented at the International Society of Heart and Lung Transplant in Prague (2012).

    Statistics: Chagas cardiomyopathy (224 patients) and idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy (63 patients). The study end-points were death and heart transplantation. Results. Over a median follow-up period of 39.5 months, 104 patients died and 9 underwent heart transplantation. Under multivariate Cox proportional hazards analysis, New York Heart Association functional class, left ventricular ejection fraction, right ventricular function and left atrial volume remained predictors of an adverse outcome. Chagas etiology was also independently associated with a poor prognosis (hazard ratio=2.48; 95% confidence interval, 1.28-4.78; P=.007) compared with idiopathic disease, after adjustment for other well-established predictive parameters in heart failure. Conclusions. The identification of Chagas etiology in patients with dilated cardiomyopathy was of prognostic significance. Chagas cardiomyopathy was associated with poorer survival compared with idiopathic disease, irrespective of other clinical and echocardiographic parameters related to a poor prognosis in heart failure.
