12 Possible Causes for Conduction Disorder of the Heart, Drug-induced Cardiomyopathy, Pulsus Alternans

  • Dilated Cardiomyopathy

    disorders.[doi.org] Toxins-induced cardiomyopathy – the most common toxin is ethanol following by illegal drug abuse of cocaine and amphetamines.[escardio.org] Pulsus alternans is an infrequent, complex pathophysiologic sign often associated with severe heart failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Heart Failure

    Certain parasites that get into the heart muscle in tropical countries Constrictive pericarditis Coronary artery disease Disorders of the heart's electrical conduction system[cedars-sinai.edu] Find out more Cancer therapy-induced cardiomyopathy: can human induced pluripotent stem cell modelling help prevent it?[eurheartj.oxfordjournals.org] alternans (alternating large and small pulse pressures) and a raised JVP.[patient.info]

  • Toxic Myocarditis

    Viruses account for most cases of myocarditis or inflammatory cardiomyopathy, which could induce an immune response causing inflammation even when the pathogen has been cleared[revespcardiol.org] […] rhythm and conduction disorders, and heart failure.[textbookofcardiology.org] Other etiologic agents responsible for myocarditis include drugs, toxic substances, or autoimmune conditions.[revespcardiol.org]

  • Hypersensitivity Myocarditis

    […] rhythm and conduction disorders, and heart failure.[textbookofcardiology.org] A prompt diagnosis, immediate withdrawal of the offending drug and immunosuppressant therapy may decrease mortality in drug-induced acute EM [ 1 ].[karger.com] Anthracycline-induced cardiomyopathy.

    Drug-induced hypersensitivity syndrome due to mexiletine associated with human herpes virus 6 and cytomegalovirus reactivation.[scielo.br] Transformation of myocarditis and inflammatory cardiomyopathy to idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy: facts and fiction.[scielo.br]

  • Lymphocytic Myocarditis

    Viruses account for most cases of myocarditis or inflammatory cardiomyopathy, which could induce an immune response causing inflammation even when the pathogen has been cleared[revespcardiol.org] Other etiologic agents responsible for myocarditis include drugs, toxic substances, or autoimmune conditions.[revespcardiol.org]

  • Hemochromatosis-related Cardiomyopathy

    Conduction disorders may present which require pacing, and standard heart failure therapy may be instituted in case of ventricular dilatation and functional impairment.[textbookofcardiology.org] Toxins-induced cardiomyopathy – the most common toxin is ethanol following by illegal drug abuse of cocaine and amphetamines.[escardio.org] Pacemaker or ICD implantation is indicated in patients with conduction disorders or malignant arrhythmias, as medical treatment is usually ineffective in these cases.[textbookofcardiology.org]
