165 Possible Causes for Sudden Death due to Cardiomyopathy

  • Streptococcal Infection

    She had no history of cardiac symptoms and was not in a high-risk group for sudden death due to hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Post-mortem examination identified both systemic group A streptococcal infection and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We believe the disseminated but asymptomatic group A streptococcal infection precipitated her early death from hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Superior Vena Cava Syndrome

    death due to ischemic cardiomyopathy, presenting left superior vena cava syndrome.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] past 10 years, having already experienced an acute myocardial infarction, bearer automatic implantable cardioverter defibrillator for 8 years after an episode of aborted sudden[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Catecholaminergic Polymorphic Ventricular Tachycardia

    Sudden cardiac death (SCD) in athletes 35 years of age are mostly due to congenital or acquired cardiac malformations or hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Ventricular Arrhythmia

    Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is associated with an increased risk of sudden cardiac death (SCD) primarily due to ventricular arrhythmia (VA).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pilotto Syndrome

    Some of these sudden deaths can be misdiagnosed due to attributing them to the consumption of toxic substances. cardiomyopathies are among the most frequent causes of sudden[revespcardiol.org] In the last 2 decades progress has been made in identifying the risk markers associated with sudden death due to hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.[revespcardiol.org] There is no clear relationship between hypertrophic cardiomyopathy without obstruction and mild morphological characteristics and increased risk of sudden death due to exercise[revespcardiol.org]

  • Loeffler Endocarditis

    Sudden cardiac death due to hypertrophic cardiomyopathy can be reduced by pre-participation cardiovascular screening in young athletes.

  • LEOPARD Syndrome

    We report the sudden cardiac death of a young male presenting with classic clinical features of LEOPARD syndrome, shown to be due to a mutation in the PTPN11 gene, and severe[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] non obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Quetiapine

    Various studies showed increased sudden cardiac death and sudden unexpected deaths.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We describe a case of cardiomyopathy due to quetiapine. Atypical antipsychotics are known for their multiple and sometimes dangerous side effects.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Dilated Cardiomyopathy Type 2B

    Sudden death may occur due to heart defects.[igm.cnr.it] Sudden death may occur.[igm.cnr.it] Genes Table DILATED CARDIOMYOPATHY WITH CONDUCTION DEFECTS Dilated cardiomyopathy with conduction defects (CMD-DC) affects cardiac muscle.[igm.cnr.it]

  • Syncope

    Among the rare and well-known causes of sudden cardiac death by malignant arrthymias is a condition called arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] in second to fifth decade of life, making it an unrecognized and important cause of sudden cardiac death.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] It commonly presents with right ventricular dilatation, dysfunction and ventricular tachycardia of left bundle branch morphology due to fibro-fatty infiltration of right ventricle[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
