167 Possible Causes for Cardiomyopathy, Gowers Sign, 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] ’s sign of proximal muscle weakness 1.[radiopaedia.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] She exhibited Gowers' sign, calf muscle hypertrophy, and a high serum creatine kinase level at 2 years.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy Type 2C

    Symptoms may additionally include: enlargement (hypertrophy) of the calf muscle and tongue, diseases of the heart muscle ( cardiomyopathy ), and respiratory abnormalities.[rarediseases.info.nih.gov] Patients may also experience cardiomyopathy and lung disease, and may develop scoliosis and joint contractures as the disease progresses.[sema4genomics.com] Mild to moderate elevated serum creatine kinase levels and positive Gowers sign are reported.[orpha.net]

  • 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.com] From age 27 years, he developed proximal muscle weakness predominantly of the lower limbs, a positive Gower sign, and a waddling gait.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Muscular Dystrophy-Dystroglycanopathy Type C3
