1,154 Possible Causes for Cardiomyopathy, Progressive Contractures

  • 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] […] have diagnostic/prognostic value in heart diseases, it is worth assessing whether it is also involved in the pathogenesis and can be applied in the diagnosis of the dilated cardiomyopathy[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Chronic Alcoholism

    […] without cardiomyopathy (p 0.001, both) and controls (p 0.05, both).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Acute renal failure secondary to progressively decreasing renal blood flow (hepatorenal syndrome) may develop.[merckmanuals.com] Light-to-moderate alcohol intake is associated with a decreased incidence of coronary heart disease, while heavy drinking may be a precursor for cardiomyopathy.[symptoma.com]

  • 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] Although dilated cardiomyopathy is a sign of Duchenne and Becker muscular dystrophy (described above), X-linked dilated cardiomyopathy is typically not associated with weakness[ghr.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] RESULTS: The proband had typical clinical manifestation of EDMD: joint contracture, progressive muscle weakness and atrophy and cardiac conduction dysfunction.[pesquisa.bvsalud.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] BACKGROUND: Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is frequently complicated by development of a cardiomyopathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Emery-Dreifuss Muscular Dystrophy Type 1

    Abstract The original Virginia family with X‐linked muscular dystrophy with early contractures and cardiomyopathy (Emery‐Dreifuss type) has been reinvestigated 25 years later[doi.org] Confusion with the common idiopathic toe walking inhibits therapy and prophylaxis of progressive contractures and skeleton deformities.[zehenspitzengang.de] These include early-onset contractures, very slow progressive muscle weakness and degeneration involving the upper arms and lower legs, and cardiac (heart) muscle disease.[mda.org.au]

  • 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] Calf hypertrophy, cardiomyopathy, respiratory impairment, tendon contractures, scoliosis, and exercise-induced myoglobinuria may be observed.[rarediseases.info.nih.gov]

  • Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy Type 2F

    Keywords Delta-sarcoglycan Severe LGMD phenotype Cardiomyopathy References 1. Nigro V, Moreira ES, Piluso G, et al.[link.springer.com] There is variable rate of progression. May develop myalgia, myoglobinuria, contractures, muscle hypertrophy.[patient.info] LGMD1B patients often exhibit findings of both cardiomyopathy and dysrhythmia [ 7 ] .[pubs.sciepub.com]

  • 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] LGMD1B patients often exhibit findings of both cardiomyopathy and dysrhythmia [ 7 ].[pubs.sciepub.com]

  • 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] The report on the patients described here has widened the clinical spectrum associated with POMT1 mutations to include cardiomyopathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
