Ischemic Cardiomyopathy

Ischemic cardiomyopathy (IC) is a condition that occurs when the heart muscle is weakened. In this condition, the left ventricle, which is the main heart muscle, is usually enlarged and dilated. This condition can be a result of a heart attack or coronary artery disease, a narrowing of the arteries. These narrowed arteries keep blood from reaching portions of your heart. The weakened heart muscle inhibits your heart’s ability to pump blood and can lead to heart failure. Major risk factors of heart disease, such as family history, high blood pressure, smoking, diabetes, high blood cholesterol, and obesity can also place one at increased risk for cardiovascular disease and ischemic cardiomyopathy.

Ischemic cardiomyopathy is a term used to describe patients whose heart can no longer pump enough blood to the rest of their body, Non ischemic cardiomyopathy is weakness in the muscle of the heart that is not due to coronary artery disease to make a diagnosis coronary artery disease should ruled off. Ischemic cardiomyopathy end stage is characterized by myocyte loss, reactive cellular hypertrophy, and ventricular scarring. However, the relative contribution of these tissue and cellular processes to late failure remains to be determined.
