66 Possible Causes for Cardiomyopathy, Positive Gower's 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] Boys with DMD demonstrate a positive Gowerssign, a maneuver used by individuals with proximal muscle weakness to rise from a seated position.[natera.com]

  • 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] A physical examination revealed proximal muscle weakness, calf hypertrophy, deep tendon hyporflexia and a positive Gower's sign.[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] We report a Saudi Arabian family with weakness in limb-girdle distribution: waddling gait, positive Gowers' sign, and marked muscle atrophy in the shoulder and pelvic girdle[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]

  • Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy Type 2A

    COMMON Features of the Disorder Difficulty walking Wheelchair assistance Scoliosis Joint contractures Muscle cramps Exercise intolerance Cardiomyopathy (weak heart muscles[evolvegene.com] There is variable rate of progression. May develop myalgia, myoglobinuria, contractures, muscle hypertrophy.[patient.info] At presentation, waddling gait, positive Gowers' sign, and marked muscle atrophy in pelvic and leg muscles were noted.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Emery-Dreifuss Muscular Dystrophy Type 2

    An Indian family with an Emery-Dreifuss myopathy and familial dilated cardiomyopathy due to a novel LMNA mutation.[annalsofian.org] contractures-limb-girdle weakness-muscle dystrophy syndrome Coenzyme Q10 deficiency Congenital fiber-type disproportion myopathy Congenital fibrosis of extraocular muscles[se-atlas.de] […] showed a positive Gowers sign.[elsevier.es]

  • Muscular Dystrophy-Dystroglycanopathy Type C5

    LGMD1B patients often exhibit findings of both cardiomyopathy and dysrhythmia [ 7 ].[pubs.sciepub.com] – not usually very rapidly progressive – joint contractures may be present 2B dysferlin 15-25 usually (variable) no no – usually slow progression – muscle pain and swelling[mda.org.au] Mild to moderate elevated serum creatine kinase levels and positive Gowers sign are reported.[orpha.net]

  • Muscular Dystrophy-Dystroglycanopathy Type C3

    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] 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]

  • Autosomal Recessive Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy

    […] encoding the protein caveolin-3 are associated with autosomal dominant limb girdle muscular dystrophy 1C, rippling muscle disease, hyperCKemia, distal myopathy, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] There is variable rate of progression. May develop myalgia, myoglobinuria, contractures, muscle hypertrophy.[patient.info] Mild to moderate elevated serum creatine kinase levels and positive Gowers sign are reported.[orpha.net]
