423 Possible Causes for Drug-induced Cardiomyopathy, Incomplete Right Bundle Branch Block, Pulsus Alternans

  • Dilated Cardiomyopathy

    Toxins-induced cardiomyopathy – the most common toxin is ethanol following by illegal drug abuse of cocaine and amphetamines.[] Pulsus alternans is an infrequent, complex pathophysiologic sign often associated with severe heart failure.[] cardiomyopathy Tachycardia-induced cardiomyopathy (TIC) is caused by sustained rapid ventricular rates and is one of the well-known forms of reversible myocardial diseases[]

  • Alcoholic Cardiomyopathy

    Models, Animal Ethanol/toxicity Gene Expression Regulation/drug effects Heart Failure/chemically induced Heart Failure/genetics* Heart Failure/pathology Humans Mice Mitochondria[] Leg elevation promptly reversed the pulsus alternans, and the echocardiographic abnormality.[] Gov't MeSH terms Acetaldehyde/toxicity Aldehyde Dehydrogenase, Mitochondrial/genetics Animals Cardiomyopathy, Alcoholic/genetics* Cardiomyopathy, Alcoholic/pathology Disease[]

  • Acute Myocarditis

  • Hemochromatosis-related Cardiomyopathy

    Toxins-induced cardiomyopathy – the most common toxin is ethanol following by illegal drug abuse of cocaine and amphetamines.[] Medications-induced cardiomyopathy – the most pathogenic are chemotherapeutic agents such as anthracyclines, cyclophosphamide, and trastuzumab.[] Tachycardia-induced cardiomyopathy – persistent tachycardia, particularly uncontrolled atrial fibrillation, atrio-ventricular nodal reentry, and preexcitation syndromes with[]

  • 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[] An electrocardiogram (ECG) showed sinus tachycardia with presumably new ST-segment elevation and signs of an incomplete right bundle branch block.[] Other etiologic agents responsible for myocarditis include drugs, toxic substances, or autoimmune conditions.[]

  • Cardiomyopathy

    Cardiomyopathy is disease in which the heart muscle becomes weakened, stretched, or has another structural problem. It often occurs when the heart cannot pump or function well. Most people with cardiomyopathy have heart failure. There are many types of cardiomyopathy, with different causes. Some of the more[…][]

  • Secondary Cardiomyopathy

    A previous ECG (two years ago) showed incomplete right bundle branch block morphology but no other abnormality.[] Discussion The admission ECG shows sinus tachycardia at a rate of 148bpm, incomplete right bundle branch block, ST-segment depressions in the inferior and anterolateral leads[]

  • Peripartum Cardiomyopathy

    Peripartum cardiomyopathy is a devastating medical condition and carries a mortality of up to 60% with medical treatment. The authors describe their experience of successful outcome of three cases with heart transplantation and review the literature. The importance of performance of endomyocardial biopsy for all[…][]
