14 Possible Causes for Cardiomyopathy, Early Repolarization, Myoclonic Jerking

  • Cocaine Abuse

    The clinical course is abrupt and comparatively similar to other types of cardiomyopathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The therapy of cocaine-induced cardiomyopathy is similar to the way that other types of cardiomyopathy are managed.[bmcresnotes.biomedcentral.com] Cardiovascular complications of cocaine abuse include myocardial ischemia and infarction, dysrhythmias, cardiomyopathies and aortic dissection.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Wilson Disease

    jerking similar to that seen in progressive myoclonic syndrome.[web.archive.org] Cardiac injury may include arrhythmia, cardiomyopathy, and autonomic dysfunction.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] lesions Abdominal imaging findings are neither sensitive nor specific Resting ECG abnormalities include left ventricular or biventricular hypertrophy, early repolarization[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Syncope

    jerking is common in syncope.[emed.ie] Among the rare and well-known causes of sudden cardiac death by malignant arrthymias is a condition called arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Why is ‘Benign’ early repolarization not a benign condition in patients with syncope? Which children with syncope should be admitted? and many more….[emergencymedicinecases.com]

  • Sudden Cardiac Death

    The following points need to be considered: Prompt recognition and diagnosis (brief seizure-like activity or involuntary myoclonic jerks have been reported in approximately[cry.ie] CONCLUSION: To improve the prognosis of cardiomyopathies an early onset of treatment is needed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Patients having major clinical events showed more frequent Brugada type patterns, early repolarization, and more diffuse multivessel coronary vasospasms.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Torsades De Pointes

    Therefore, in this context long or short QT syndrome, Brugada syndrome or early repolarization syndrome were unlikely. 6 Analysis of periods of torsade de pointes in our patient[revportcardiol.org] (Takotsubo cardiomyopathy) is relatively good, some patients with this syndrome develop torsades de pointes, which can be fatal.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The following day, nursing staff observed repetitive, short-lived episodes of generalized mild myoclonic jerks. The patient remained conscious during these episodes.[consultant360.com]

  • Hypertrichotic Osteochondrodysplasia

    jerks.[genomeweb.com] Diseases related with Cardiomyopathy and Short phalanx of finger In the following list you will find some of the most common rare diseases related to Cardiomyopathy and Short[mendelian.co] Examples of J-wave disorders are arrhythmias associated with an early repolarization pattern in the inferior or mid to lateral precordial leads, Brugada syndrome, some cases[genecards.org]

  • Sick Sinus Syndrome

    Syncope may be accompanied by myoclonic jerks (convulsive syncope), but postictal confusion is absent.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Although acromegalic patients with cardiomyopathy are usually resistant to therapy, we successfully treated the patient by the surgeries.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The simultaneous occurrence of V596M and R16472H may increase the severity of early repolarization.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Carotid Sinus Syncope

    Patients in whom the cardiac arrest had lasted 14 seconds had 1 or 2 generalized myoclonic jerks.[ajnr.org] 5.6.4 Arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy 5.6.5 Patients with inheritable arrhythmogenic disorders 6.[escardio.org] In patients with syncope, the clinical significance of the early repolarization pattern is unknown. Recommendations for Early Repolarization Pattern 5.[ahajournals.org]

  • Familial Progressive Cardiac Conduction Defect Type 2

    Seizures began at 21/2 years with arm stiffness, then clusters of right-sided facial twitching and weakness, then staring spells, eye twitching, and myoclonic jerks.[bcmj.org] Conduction disease preceded the development of dilated cardiomyopathy in the proband's family [ 1, 10 ].[bmcmedgenet.biomedcentral.com] Long-term outcome associated with early repolarization on electrocardiography. N Engl J Med 2009; 361: 2529–37.[aerjournal.com]

  • SHORT Syndrome

    High prevalence of early repolarization in short QT syndrome. Heart Rhythm 2010;7:647-52.[acc.org] […] and/or arrhythmia Differentiation of hereditary cardiomyopathy and/or arrhythmia from acquired (non-genetic) cardiomyopathy and/or arrhythmia Recurrence risk calculation[genedx.com] Myoclonic seizures (brief shock-like jerks of a muscle or group of muscles) appear between 1 and 5 years in 85% of children with Dravet syndrome.[epilepsy.com]
