211 Possible Causes for Drug-induced Cardiomyopathy, Multi Gated Acquisition Scan Abnormal, Pulsus Alternans

  • 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] cardiomyopathy Tachycardia-induced cardiomyopathy (TIC) is caused by sustained rapid ventricular rates and is one of the well-known forms of reversible myocardial diseases[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • 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] Gov't MeSH terms Acetaldehyde/toxicity Aldehyde Dehydrogenase, Mitochondrial/genetics Animals Cardiomyopathy, Alcoholic/genetics* Cardiomyopathy, Alcoholic/pathology Disease[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Myocarditis

    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]

  • 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] Other etiologic agents responsible for myocarditis include drugs, toxic substances, or autoimmune conditions.[revespcardiol.org]

  • 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] Anthracycline-induced cardiomyopathy. Postgrad. Med. 2008, 120, 67–72. [ Google Scholar ] [ CrossRef ] [ PubMed ] Taliercio, C.P.; Olney, B.A.; Lie, J.T.[mdpi.com] In subacute and chronic EM, intracardiac thrombi, endomyocardial fibrosis and restrictive cardiomyopathy can be found.[karger.com]

  • 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

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

  • 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[…][nlm.nih.gov]

  • Ischemic Cardiomyopathy

    Because of the shortage of donor hearts, 16 (33%) of 48 patients with ischemic cardiomyopathy died awaiting transplantation. Determining factors that predict effective coronary revascularization and identifying patients who may benefit from revascularization is crucial. From 1984 to 1990, 207 ischemic cardiomyopathy[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Fungal Myocarditis

    Once heart dysfunction sets in, signs of cardiac failure may manifest, such as pulmonary edema (fluid accumulation in the lungs), peripheral oedema, hypoxemia, pulsus alternans[medindia.net]
