176 Possible Causes for Dilated Cardiomyopathy May Occur

  • Cardiomyopathy

    Dilated cardiomyopathy may also occur as part of certain endocrine, blood (hematological), and collagen vascular disorders.[rarediseases.org] Dilated cardiomyopathy occurs when diseased heart muscle fibers stretch and cause the pump chamber, the left ventricle, to dilate.[aopa.org] Dilated cardiomyopathy may also occur secondary to a generalized genetic disorder such as one of the muscular dystrophies, certain metabolic disorders, or a rare genetic disorder[rarediseases.org]

  • Stroke

    Severe progressive dilated cardiomyopathy, requiring heart transplantation, can occur[ 121 ].[dx.doi.org] Dilated cardiomyopathy in CD may be accompanied by congestive heart failure and is also becoming increasingly recognized in the pediatric population[ 122, 123 ].[dx.doi.org] Dilated cardiomyopathy may evolve due to carnitine deficiency[ 126, 127 ], which is related to CD, but may also develop after onset of the GFD, particularly in patients lacking[dx.doi.org]

  • Left Cardiac Ventricle Disorder

    Blood Clots With dilated cardiomyopathy, the blood flow through the heart is abnormal which may cause blood clots to form within the heart (thromboembolism).[childrenscardiomyopathy.org] If this occurs, a pacemaker needs to be implanted.[childrenscardiomyopathy.org] Heart Block If the normal electrical system within the heart fails to function properly, the heart's conduction is disrupted and the heartbeat may become too slow.[childrenscardiomyopathy.org]

  • Atrial Arrhythmia

    For example, AF occurs in some people with heart valve problems, pericardial disease, dilated cardiomyopathy and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.[patient.info] For example, AF occurs in some people with heart valve problems , pericardial disease , dilated cardiomyopathy and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy .[patient.info] Various other heart problems may also trigger AF to develop.[patient.info]

  • Myocardial Infarction

    Severe progressive dilated cardiomyopathy, requiring heart transplantation, can occur[ 121 ].[dx.doi.org] Dilated cardiomyopathy in CD may be accompanied by congestive heart failure and is also becoming increasingly recognized in the pediatric population[ 122, 123 ].[dx.doi.org] Dilated cardiomyopathy may evolve due to carnitine deficiency[ 126, 127 ], which is related to CD, but may also develop after onset of the GFD, particularly in patients lacking[dx.doi.org]

  • Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

    In some cases, the condition may develop into dilated cardiomyopathy.[nlm.nih.gov] In some cases, the condition may develop into dilated cardiomyopathy .[medlineplus.gov] Sudden death can occur at a young age. There are different types of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, which have different prognoses.[nlm.nih.gov]

  • Atrial Fibrillation

    For example, AF occurs in some people with heart valve problems, pericardial disease, dilated cardiomyopathy and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.[patient.info] Various other heart problems may also trigger AF to develop.[patient.info] Other conditions and situations that may trigger AF to develop include: An overactive thyroid gland (hyperthyroidism). Pneumonia. Pulmonary embolus. Obesity.[patient.info]

  • Syncope

    Thus, VT occurring in the setting of ischemic heart disease, valvular heart disease or certain dilated cardiomyopathies may result in symptomatic hypotension.[scielo.edu.uy] However, VT also occurs in some individuals with important examples are long-QT syndrome, and Brugada syndrome.[scielo.edu.uy]

  • Dilated Cardiomyopathy

    Other problems that may occur with dilated cardiomyopathy include the following: Irregular heart rhythms Risk of blood clots Congestive heart failure The dilated left ventricle[stlouischildrens.org] Other people develop symptoms, which may progress as heart function worsens.Symptoms of dilated cardiomyopathy can occur at any age and may include: Shortness of breath.[my.clevelandclinic.org] What is dilated cardiomyopathy? Dilated cardiomyopathy is the most common form of cardiomyopathy.[stlouischildrens.org]

  • Atrial Flutter

    […] in the setting of dilated cardiomyopathy, because this may be due to the FAT itself (tachycardiomyopathy) and normal cardiac function could be recovered after ablation. 42[revespcardiol.org] In very young children (less than 3-4 years of age) it may be worth trying a control drug because FAT can disappear over time. 41 It is important to assess FAT that occurs[revespcardiol.org]
