14 Possible Causes for Dilated Cardiomyopathy, Drug-induced Cardiomyopathy, Pulsus Alternans

  • Heart Failure

    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] Few cases report patients with heart failure, secondary to dilated cardiomyopathy, with high fever.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Dilated Cardiomyopathy

    Pulsus alternans is an infrequent, complex pathophysiologic sign often associated with severe heart failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Toxins-induced cardiomyopathy – the most common toxin is ethanol following by illegal drug abuse of cocaine and amphetamines.[escardio.org] Symptoms are a good indicator of the severity of dilated cardiomyopathy.[symptoma.com]

  • Alcoholic Cardiomyopathy

    Models, Animal Ethanol/toxicity Gene Expression Regulation/drug effects Heart Failure/chemically induced Heart Failure/genetics* Heart Failure/pathology Humans Mice Mitochondria[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Leg elevation promptly reversed the pulsus alternans, and the echocardiographic abnormality.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] BACKGROUND: The histologic difference between alcoholic cardiomyopathy (ACM) and idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy (IDCM) is unclear.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Myocarditis

    Drug-induced hypersensitivity syndrome due to mexiletine associated with human herpes virus 6 and cytomegalovirus reactivation.[scielo.br] DCM, dilated cardiomyopathy.[heart.bmj.com] Here, we report a case of 3-month-old twins with acute viral myocarditis, in which one of the twins, who had LVNC that progressed rapidly to dilated cardiomyopathy (DCMP)[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • 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] Dilated or restrictive cardiomyopathy can result.[clevelandclinicmeded.com] A 2-dimensional echocardiogram performed at the onset of congestive heart failure showed dilated cardiomyopathy with global impairment of left ventricular function (ejection[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hypersensitivity Myocarditis

    A prompt diagnosis, immediate withdrawal of the offending drug and immunosuppressant therapy may decrease mortality in drug-induced acute EM [ 1 ].[karger.com] Dilated cardiomyopathy overview.[mdpi.com] Adequate rest becomes more important to recovery if the case is severe myocarditis with signs of dilated cardiomyopathy (disease of the heart muscles).[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    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] Interestingly, she initially presented with dilated cardiomyopathy, without any relevant history or signs of hypertension.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • 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] Abstract Thirty-four patients with history of congestive heart failure, dilated cardiomyopathy, and biopsy-proven lymphocytic myocarditis were treated for six months with[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) has an estimated frequency of 7.5-10% per 100,000 inhabitants per year.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hemochromatosis-related Cardiomyopathy

    Toxins-induced cardiomyopathy – the most common toxin is ethanol following by illegal drug abuse of cocaine and amphetamines.[escardio.org] Dilated cardiomyopathy is a typical complication of HH.[sciencedomain.org] […] increased production of free radicals, which would cause fibrosis (thus resulting in restrictive cardiomyopathy, not dilated).[forums.studentdoctor.net]

  • Myocardial Infarction
