136 Possible Causes for Cardiomyopathy, Creatine Phosphokinase Increased, Progressive Contractures

  • Muscular Dystrophy

    A pilot study was conducted to assess the safety and efficacy of tranilast in muscular dystrophy patients with cardiomyopathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Walking braces for the ankle-foot or the knee-ankle-foot can help support weak muscles and keep the body flexible, slowing progression of contractures. Medications.[web.archive.org] The diagnosis of muscular dystrophy is based on the results of muscle biopsy, increased creatine phosphokinase (CpK3), electromyography, and genetic testing.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy

    This is the first report showing the electron microscopic findings of dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) accompanied with limb girdle muscular dystrophy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] There is variable rate of progression. May develop myalgia, myoglobinuria, contractures, muscle hypertrophy.[patient.info] We present a 19-year-old girl with epilepsy and elevated creatine phosphokinase (CPK) concentration.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Congenital Muscular Dystrophy

    cardiomyopathy died at the ages of 2 years 1 month, and 7 years 4 months respectively.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We report the first known Egyptian patient with FCMD, established by clinical features of generalized weakness, pseudohypertrophy of calf muscles, progressive joint contractures[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The diagnosis of muscular dystrophy is based on the results of muscle biopsy, increased creatine phosphokinase (CpK3), electromyography, and genetic testing.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

    She was treated for peripartum cardiomyopathy (PPCM) with angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEi), beta-blockers and diuretics with normalisation of her cardiac function[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Surgical Treatment Progressive contractures may be improved with tendon lengthening but recurrence rates may be high.[posna.org] BACKGROUND: Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is frequently complicated by development of a cardiomyopathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Becker Muscular Dystrophy

    Patients with Becker muscular dystrophy-related cardiomyopathy typically survive into their 30s, when they succumb to complications of cardiomyopathy or receive heart transplants[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Progressive scoliosis and contracture formation may require surgical intervention.[emedicine.medscape.com] High serum creatine kinase Increased CPK Increased creatine kinase Increased creatine phosphokinase Increased serum CK Increased serum creatine kinase Increased serum creatine[rarediseases.info.nih.gov]

  • Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy Type 2A

    الصفحة 214 - Both hypertrophic and dilated cardiomyopathies are caused by mutation of the same gene, deltasarcoglycan, in hamster: An animal model of disrupted dystrophin-associated[books.google.com] There is variable rate of progression. May develop myalgia, myoglobinuria, contractures, muscle hypertrophy.[patient.info] High serum creatine kinase Increased CPK Increased creatine kinase Increased creatine phosphokinase Increased serum CK Increased serum creatine kinase Increased serum creatine[rarediseases.info.nih.gov]

  • Dermatomyositis

    […] due to dermatomyositis Dilated cardiomyopathy secondary to dermatomyositis Disorder of respiratory system due to dermatomyositis Juvenile dermatomyositis Juvenile dermatomyositis[icd9data.com] , the muscles begin to waste away (atrophy) and permanently shorten (contracture); children with juvenile dermatomyositis may experience a more rapid onset.[myositis.org.au] Elevated creatine phosphokinase increases the suspicion of an inflammatory muscle disease, and muscle biopsy is the definitive diagnostic tool for inflammatory myopathies.[rc.rcjournal.com]

  • Glycogen Storage Disease Type 2

    , lysosomal disease with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, glycogen storage disease with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, lysosomal glycogen storage disease Prende il nome da Johannes[commons.wikimedia.org] Limb contractures in progressive neuromuscular disease and the role of stretching, orthotics, and surgery.[dx.doi.org] If left untreated, affected infants often die from hypertrophic cardiomyopathy during their first year of life.[symptoma.com]

  • Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy Type 2E

    LGMD1B patients often exhibit findings of both cardiomyopathy and dysrhythmia [ 7 ].[pubs.sciepub.com] There is variable rate of progression. May develop myalgia, myoglobinuria, contractures, muscle hypertrophy.[patient.info] High serum creatine kinase Increased CPK Increased creatine kinase Increased creatine phosphokinase Increased serum CK Increased serum creatine kinase Increased serum creatine[rarediseases.info.nih.gov]

  • Secondary Myopathy

    There are four types of non-ischemic cardiomyopathy: Dilated Cardiomyopathy Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy Restrictive Cardiomyopathy Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Dysplasia[my.clevelandclinic.org] Progressive contractures in hands, elbow, ankles and knees is progressive and patients usually do not attain ambulation. EOM and facial muscles are spared.[sites.google.com] Cirioni O, Weimer LE, Fragola V, et al.(2013) Sustained Increase of Serum Creatine Phosphokinase Levels and Progressive Muscle Abnormalities Associated with Raltegravir use[hiv.imedpub.com]
