7 Possible Causes for Progressive and Sometimes Fatal Heart Failure

  • Familial Isolated Dilated Cardiomyopathy

    Homepage Rare diseases Search Search for a rare disease Familial isolated dilated cardiomyopathy Disease definition Familial isolated dilated cardiomyopathy is a rare, genetically heterogeneous cardiac disease characterized by dilatation leading to systolic and diastolic dysfunction of the left and/or right ventricles,[…][orpha.net]

  • Pulmonary Fibrosis

    Some forms of pulmonary hypertension are serious illnesses that become progressively worse and are sometimes fatal. Right-sided heart failure (cor pulmonale).[mayoclinic.org] This in turn raises pressure within the pulmonary arteries and the lower right heart chamber (right ventricle).[mayoclinic.org]

  • Secondary Pulmonary Interstitial Fibrosis

    Some forms of pulmonary hypertension are serious illnesses that become progressively worse and are sometimes fatal. Right-sided heart failure (cor pulmonale).[mayoclinic.org] This in turn raises pressure within the pulmonary arteries and the lower right heart chamber (right ventricle).[mayoclinic.org]

  • Friedreich Ataxia

    In a few cases, cardiomyopathy progresses to the point of causing heart failure or fatal arrhythmias, sometimes at a young age. 1 Pathologically, there is a real hypertrophy[doi.org] […] of cardiomyocytes at the beginning, followed by their loss and replacement by connective tissue when cardiomyopathy progresses toward heart failure and a final dilation stage[doi.org] On the other hand, the electrocardiogram is almost always abnormal in the repolarization phase, indicating that subclinical heart disease is almost universal in FRDA.[doi.org]

  • Familial Pseudohyperkalemia

    Progressive symptoms are severe agitation, psychosis, fever, diaphoresis, tachycardia, heart failure, atrial fibrillation, or atrial flutter, confusion, cardiovascular collapse[quizlet.com] Pituitary Tumur -- causes central hypothyroidism A severe sometimes fatal form of HYPERthyroidism. Initial symptoms are fever, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain.[quizlet.com]

  • Tracheobronchial Tuberculosis
