373 Possible Causes for Cardiomyopathy, Muscle Biopsy Abnormal, Progressive Contractures

  • Muscular Dystrophy

    This condition is typically characterized by large and abnormally distributed mitochondria on muscle biopsy, which can distinguish this condition from the other muscle conditions[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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]

  • Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

    Diagnosis of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy A muscle biopsy (taking a sample of muscle) for dystrophin studies can be done to look for abnormal levels of dystrophin in the muscle[disabled-world.com] 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]

  • Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy

    Muscle biopsy abnormalities in two individuals very early in the course of their disease suggest that biopsy would probably be useful in detection of preclinical disease in[pediatrics.aappublications.org] 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]

  • Becker Muscular Dystrophy

    Electromyography was abnormal in all patients. Muscle biopsy in 1 patient demonstrated normal immunostaining for dystrophin.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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]

  • Glycogen Storage Disease Type 2

    A muscle tissue biopsy may be assayed for muscle glycogen phosphorylase enzyme activity.[encyclopedia.com] , lysosomal disease with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, glycogen storage disease with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, lysosomal glycogen storage disease Prende il nome da Johannes[commons.wikimedia.org] Limb contractures in progressive neuromuscular disease and the role of stretching, orthotics, and surgery.[dx.doi.org]

  • Dermatomyositis

    Muscle biopsy abnormalities at some time during their disease: i. degeneration and regeneration of muscle fibers ii. necrosis iii. phagocytosis iv. interstitial mononuclear[clinicaltrials.gov] […] 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]

  • Facioscapulohumeral Muscular Dystrophy

    If genetic testing does not confirm the diagnosis, then muscle biopsy can be done.[merckmanuals.com] 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]

  • Erb Muscular Dystrophy

    biopsy (examination of a sample of the weak muscle tissue under a microscope), and genetic testing.[msdmanuals.com] […] insufficiency MedLine Citation: PMID: 6706057 Owner: NLM Status: MEDLINE Abstract/OtherAbstract: We describe a case of Erb's limb girdle muscular dystrophy with congestive cardiomyopathy[biomedsearch.com] progression.[checkorphan.org]

  • Myopathy

    Clinical presentation, abnormal secretion of the collagen demonstrated in muscle biopsy and the COL6A1 c.1056 3A C mutation justify classification of the presented case as[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] ( 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]

  • Glycogen Storage Disease Type 7

    Diagnosis depends on findings from muscle biopsy, electromyography, ischemic forearm testing, creatine kinase testing, patient history, and physical examination. [3] Biochemical[emedicine.com] One patient had a mild hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Biochemical studies revealed residual PFK activity ranging from 1 to 5%.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] (40%): Shoulders; Hips; Knees; Neck Weight loss Smooth muscle: Urinary or Fecal incontinence Hearing loss Course Progressive Disability related to disease duration 14 Disability[neuromuscular.wustl.edu]
