752 Possible Causes for Cardiomyopathy, Limb Weakness, 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 symptoms of FSH dystrophy may appear during childhood with severe facial and limb weakness or develop slowly and gradually in adulthood with progressive difficulty closing[kennedykrieger.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] Limb-girdle muscular dystrophies (LGMD) are a group of clinically and genetically heterogeneous diseases characterized by weakness and wasting of the pelvic and shoulder girdle[ncbi.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] And 2) are these gait deviations related to lower limb weakness?[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • 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] FSHD presentation with foot drop or lower limb proximal weakness appeared to be more frequent than expected.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Glycogen Storage Disease Type 2

In the adult form, the patient may have limb-girdle weakness.[emedicine.medscape.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] Patient-reported perceived changes (worse/stable) in balance, walking, lower-limb weakness, stair-climbing and hand weakness were used as criteria.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Erb Muscular Dystrophy

  • 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] Linkage to 15q was exclu... more The clinical syndrome of slowly progressive proximal limb and limb girdle muscular weakness and atrophy, or limb girdle syndromes (LGS), has[scinapse.io]

  • 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] Symptoms - Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy- type 2E Weakness Toe walking Muscle pain Muscle cramps Shoulder girdle muscle weakness Causes - Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy-[checkorphan.org]

  • Emery-Dreifuss Muscular Dystrophy

    Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy: humeroperoneal muscular atrophy and weakness, neck and elbow contractures with sinus bradycardia, first-degree atrioventricular block, and dilated cardiomyopathy[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy (EDMD) is a neuromuscular disorder resulting in progressive muscle weakness, contractures, and cardiomyopathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] weakness and lower limb weakness, but there is no difference for the age at onset of cardiac involvement.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
