139 Possible Causes for Sudden Death due to Cardiomyopathy

  • Histiocytoid Cardiomyopathy

    Cardiol Young. 2015 Jan;25(1):174-6. doi: 10.1017/S1047951113002382. Epub 2014 Jan 17.

  • 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]

  • Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

    Most of the reduced incidence of sudden cardiovascular death in athletes was due to fewer cases of fatal cardiomyopathies over the 26-year period.[doi.org] A higher risk of sudden cardiac death is predicted by the presence of the following risk factors: Family history of sudden cardiac death due to hypertrophic cardiomyopathy[merckmanuals.com] Most of the reduced mortality was due to fewer cases of sudden death from cardiomyopathies (from 1.50/100 000 person-years in the prescreening period to 0.15/100 000 person-years[doi.org]

  • Cardiomyopathy

    Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is a well-known cause of sudden death in athletes.[medlineplus.gov] Associated with a high mortality (2-year survival 50%) due to progressive cardiogenic shock or ventricular dysrhythmias (sudden cardiac death).[lifeinthefastlane.com] Sudden death Sudden collapse and death without any warning occur rarely in people with dilated cardiomyopathy.[patient.info]

  • Heart Failure

    .• Yield of genetic testing may be higher in patients with significant cardiac conduction disease and/or a family history of premature sudden cardiac death. 118 , 121 – 123[doi.org] Endocrine and Metabolic Causes of Cardiomyopathy 5.3.1.[doi.org] Obesity Obesity cardiomyopathy is defined as cardiomyopathy due entirely or predominantly to obesity (Section 7.3.1.5).[doi.org]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    .• Yield of genetic testing may be higher in patients with significant cardiac conduction disease and/or a family history of premature sudden cardiac death. 118 , 121 – 123[doi.org] Endocrine and Metabolic Causes of Cardiomyopathy 5.3.1.[doi.org] Obesity Obesity cardiomyopathy is defined as cardiomyopathy due entirely or predominantly to obesity (Section 7.3.1.5).[doi.org]

  • Familial Hypercholesterolemia

    Sudden death in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is usually due to a ventricular arrhythmia. 342 It is the most common cause of sudden death in the young.[circ.ahajournals.org] death and potentially to increased cardiovascular disease risk in general.[circ.ahajournals.org] […] mortality rate is 2% per year for those diagnosed in childhood and 1% per year for those diagnosed as adults. 341 A number of pathophysiological sequelae may contribute to sudden[circ.ahajournals.org]

  • Syncope

    Abstract 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]

  • Myocardial Tumor

    Abstract Myocardial tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha), a proinflammatory cytokine, is a critical inducer of myocardial dysfunction in sepsis. The purpose of this review is to summarize the mechanisms through which TNF-alpha production is regulated in cardiomyocytes in response to lipopolysaccharide (LPS), a[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Paroxysmal Supraventricular Tachycardia

    Patients with pre-excitation risk sudden cardiac death due to ventricular fibrillation induced by rapidly conducting atrial fibrillation.[patient.info] Rare complications include myocardial infarction , congestive heart failure , syncope , and sudden death .[patient.info] SVT that persists for weeks or months may lead to a tachycardia-mediated cardiomyopathy. Prognosis Prognosis is dependent on any underlying structural heart disease.[patient.info]
