91 Possible Causes for Cardiomyopathy, Electromyogram Abnormal, 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] Although dilated cardiomyopathy is a sign of Duchenne and Becker muscular dystrophy (described above), X-linked dilated cardiomyopathy is typically not associated with weakness[ghr.nlm.nih.gov]

  • 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]

  • 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] The report on the patients described here has widened the clinical spectrum associated with POMT1 mutations to include cardiomyopathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Becker Muscular Dystrophy

    […] changes in the structure of the muscle cells Tests that stain the muscle sample can be used to visualize any muscle proteins present Electromyogram (EMG): Another diagnostic[dovemed.com] 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.com]

  • 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] (EMG) which can demonstrate abnormal electrical activity in muscles and help distinguish weakness due to muscle disease from weakness due to nerve problems A nerve conduction[mda.org.au]

  • Facioscapulohumeral Muscular Dystrophy

    This is the first report of an FSHD patient with biopsy-proven cardiomyopathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In addition, even within early-onset facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy type 1 phenotypes, some cases had uncommon features (head drop, early disabling contractures, progressive[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Progression of disease varies with inability to walk usually taking place at about 20 to 30 years of onset. Facial weakness and contractures may occur later.[icd9data.com]

  • Myotonic Dystrophy

    Moreover, morphological and functional changes indicative of subclinical cardiomyopathy have been demonstrated by means of cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMRI) and spectroscopy[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Shortening of muscles or tendons around joints (contractures). Contractures can further limit mobility. Breathing problems.[mayoclinic.org] Sottoclasse di myotonic disease, cardiomiopatia ipertrofica, sindrome cerebrale organica, blefaroptosi, myopathy with eye involvement, syndrome associated with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy[commons.wikimedia.org]

  • Myopathy

    ( I25.5 ) peripartum cardiomyopathy ( O90.3 ) ventricular hypertrophy ( I51.7 ) Cardiomyopathy Approximate Synonyms Cardiomyopathy Cardiomyopathy (disease of heart muscle[icd10data.com] Nevertheless, it is our experience that weakness is slowly progressive while contractures remain virtually constant in adulthood.[academic.oup.com] Electroencephalographic abnormalities have been noted in several patients with the early-onset form of the disease before clinically apparent seizure activity begins.[anesthesiology.pubs.asahq.org]

  • 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] Although changes seen on electromyography are not pathognomonic for any specific disease process, an abnormal electromyogram can indicate if a neuropathy or neuromuscular[aafp.org]

  • Dilated Cardiomyopathy

    Dilated cardiomyopathy is characterized by increased ventricular size and impaired ventricular function. It is the most common form of non-ischemic cardiomyopathy.[symptoma.com] , skeletal myopathy and wasting EMD, LMNA Myotonic dystrophy Myotonia, weakness, baldness and cataracts ZNF9, DMPK1 Duchenne/Becker Progressive X-linked proximal myopathy[ahajournals.org] electromyogram and muscle microscopy.[path.upmc.edu]
