417 Possible Causes for Cardiomyopathy, Hyporeflexia, Progressive Contractures

  • Emery-Dreifuss Muscular Dystrophy Type 2

    An Indian family with an Emery-Dreifuss myopathy and familial dilated cardiomyopathy due to a novel LMNA mutation.[] contractures-limb-girdle weakness-muscle dystrophy syndrome Coenzyme Q10 deficiency Congenital fiber-type disproportion myopathy Congenital fibrosis of extraocular muscles[] Assessment of the patient's brother, aged 21, revealed an irregular heart beat on cardiac auscultation, and neurological study identified myotatic hyporeflexia, mild atrophy[]

  • Muscular Dystrophy

    A pilot study was conducted to assess the safety and efficacy of tranilast in muscular dystrophy patients with cardiomyopathy.[] 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.[] Although dilated cardiomyopathy is a sign of Duchenne and Becker muscular dystrophy (described above), X-linked dilated cardiomyopathy is typically not associated with weakness[]

  • 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[] Surgical Treatment Progressive contractures may be improved with tendon lengthening but recurrence rates may be high.[] BACKGROUND: Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is frequently complicated by development of a cardiomyopathy.[]

  • Congenital Muscular Dystrophy

    cardiomyopathy died at the ages of 2 years 1 month, and 7 years 4 months respectively.[] We report the first known Egyptian patient with FCMD, established by clinical features of generalized weakness, pseudohypertrophy of calf muscles, progressive joint contractures[] Examination revealed generalised hypotonia and hyporeflexia.[]

  • 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[] Progressive scoliosis and contracture formation may require surgical intervention.[] A 54-year-old patient with Becker muscular dystrophy and dilated cardiomyopathy underwent laparoscopic cholecystectomy under total intravenous anesthesia.[]

  • Muscular Dystrophy-Dystroglycanopathy Type C4

    Disease Type of connection Congenital muscular dystrophy without intellectual disability Familial isolated dilated cardiomyopathy Muscle-eye-brain disease Walker-Warburg syndrome[] There is variable rate of progression. May develop myalgia, myoglobinuria, contractures, muscle hypertrophy.[] 1A Dilated cardiomyopathy 1A Dilated cardiomyopathy 1AA Dilated cardiomyopathy 1BB Dilated cardiomyopathy 1C Dilated cardiomyopathy 1D Dilated cardiomyopathy 1E Dilated cardiomyopathy[]

  • Myotonic Dystrophy

    Moreover, morphological and functional changes indicative of subclinical cardiomyopathy have been demonstrated by means of cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMRI) and spectroscopy[] Shortening of muscles or tendons around joints (contractures). Contractures can further limit mobility. Breathing problems.[] Other typical findings of the disease were frontal alopecia, bilateral palpebral ptosis, testicular atrophy, muscular weakness with distal predominance, generalized hyporeflexia[]

  • Facioscapulohumeral Muscular Dystrophy

    This is the first report of an FSHD patient with biopsy-proven cardiomyopathy.[] In addition, even within early-onset facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy type 1 phenotypes, some cases had uncommon features (head drop, early disabling contractures, progressive[] 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.[]

  • Dermatomyositis

    […] due to dermatomyositis Dilated cardiomyopathy secondary to dermatomyositis Disorder of respiratory system due to dermatomyositis Juvenile dermatomyositis Juvenile dermatomyositis[] , the muscles begin to waste away (atrophy) and permanently shorten (contracture); children with juvenile dermatomyositis may experience a more rapid onset.[] Session Title: FIT Clinical Decision Making: Heart Failure and Cardiomyopathies 1 Abstract Category: Heart Failure and Cardiomyopathies Presentation Number: 1111-121 2019[]

  • Friedreich Ataxia

    They may develop a cardiomyopathy (CM) phenotype, which is similar to hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and potentially progresses towards a life-limiting problem.[] Dysphagia is common and progresses with the disease, and in advanced cases patients require modified diets, and eventually nasogastric feeding or gastrostomy. 7 Common oculomotor[] Frataxin replacement and anti-inflammatory agents are potential therapies in FA cardiomyopathy.[]
