822 Possible Causes for Cardiomyopathy, Progressive Contractures, Sudden Death

  • 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[] Abstract Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy (EDMD) is a neuromuscular disorder resulting in progressive muscle weakness, contractures, and cardiomyopathy.[] An autopsy was performed, and no obvious cause for the sudden death could be established.[]

  • Chronic Alcoholism

    […] without cardiomyopathy (p 0.001, both) and controls (p 0.05, both).[] Acute renal failure secondary to progressively decreasing renal blood flow (hepatorenal syndrome) may develop.[] Coronary heart disease is the most common type of heart disease and can lead to sudden death from a heart attack.[]

  • 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[] Confusion with the common idiopathic toe walking inhibits therapy and prophylaxis of progressive contractures and skeleton deformities.[] death, and heart failure. 3 , 4 In retrospective analyses, we have previously investigated the high incidence of sudden death among carriers of such mutations. 4 , 5 Although[]

  • 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[] death and ischemic accidents due to embolism.[]

  • Dilated Cardiomyopathy

    Dilated cardiomyopathy is characterized by increased ventricular size and impaired ventricular function. It is the most common form of non-ischemic cardiomyopathy.[] , skeletal myopathy and wasting EMD, LMNA Myotonic dystrophy Myotonia, weakness, baldness and cataracts ZNF9, DMPK1 Duchenne/Becker Progressive X-linked proximal myopathy[] The patient presented with sudden arrhythmic death and survived with permanent anoxic brain injury.[]

  • Left Ventricular Noncompaction

    Little is known about pregnancies of left ventricular noncompaction cardiomyopathy (LVNC), much less cases in which LVNC was definitively diagnosed prepregnancy.[] LGMD2K is characterized by severe proximal muscle weakness with slow progression. Contractures may be present.[] Sudden Death In total, 15 patients (6.2%) experienced sudden cardiac death during the study period.[]

  • Left Ventricular Hypertrophy

    Here, we report a case of tako-tsubo-like cardiomyopathy that showed a marked left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) when the wall motion returned to normal.[] Emery Dreifuss muscular dystrophy (EDMD) is a hereditary muscular disorder, characterized by contractures, progressive muscular wasting and cardiac involvement.[] No relation was identified between the incidence of sudden death or of death due to heart failure and a history of sudden death in the family (P 0.23 and P 0.48), respectively[]

  • Familial Isolated Dilated Cardiomyopathy

    The frequency of familial dilated cardiomyopathy in series of patients with idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy. N Engl J Med 1992;326:77-82. Medline 5.[] […] weakness, distal contractures and rigid spine AD/AR 3 5 TPM1 Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), Dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) AD 34 98 TTN * Dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM),[] Often, DCM can be asymptomatic and sudden death is the first and only symptom.[]

  • Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy Type 2E

    LGMD1B patients often exhibit findings of both cardiomyopathy and dysrhythmia [ 7 ].[] There is variable rate of progression. May develop myalgia, myoglobinuria, contractures, muscle hypertrophy.[] For example, a cardiac pacemaker or defibrillator can greatly reduce the risk for sudden death due to an abnormal heart rhythm.[]

  • 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.[] Sudden death with acute heart failure occurred in a patient with underlying renal dysfunction and elevated BNP.[]
