194 Possible Causes for Thickened Myocardium

  • Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

    […] of the myocardium, most commonly in the interventricular septum, with pathologic “myocardial disarray” upon microscopic inspection.[healio.com] myocardium.[emedicine.com] Thickening of the heart muscle (myocardium) occurs most commonly at the septum. The septum is the muscular wall that separates the left and right side of the heart.[my.clevelandclinic.org]

  • Cardiomyopathy

    A condition characterized by the thickening of the ventricular endocardium and subendocardium (myocardium), seen mostly in children and young adults in the tropical climate[icd9data.com] myocardium.[emedicine.com] WHAT'S CARDIOMYOPATHY Cardiomyopathy is a chronic and sometimes progressive disease in which the heart muscle (myocardium), is abnormally enlarged, thickened and/or stiffened[childrenscardiomyopathy.org]

  • Left Ventricular Noncompaction

    Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) ( Figure 2 B) revealed severe biventricular dysfunction with thickened myocardium, mainly in the LV anterior wall and apex, with a[elsevier.pt] […] ventricular myocardium with two layers consisting of compacted and noncompacted myocardium.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] LVNC is characterized by multiple prominent trabeculations with deep intertrabecular recesses resulting in thickened myocardium with two layers of compacted and non-compacted[eplabdigest.com]

  • Left Cardiac Ventricle Disorder

    Mitochondrial myopathy with disappearance of noncompaction within a thickening myocardium . Int. J. Cardiol. 167 , e101–e103 (2013). 44. Stähli, B. E. et al .[nature.com] WHAT'S CARDIOMYOPATHY Cardiomyopathy is a chronic and sometimes progressive disease in which the heart muscle (myocardium), is abnormally enlarged, thickened and/or stiffened[childrenscardiomyopathy.org]

  • Hypertensive Heart Disease

    Thickened myocardium reduces left ventricle compliance, impairing diastolic filling.[histopathology-india.net] The thickened myocardium then reduces the compliance of the left ventricle, which in turn impairs diastolic filling.[symptoma.com] CMR observations also suggest that the cardiomyopathic process in HCM is more diffuse than previously observed, extending beyond the LV myocardium to include thickening of[bmccardiovascdisord.biomedcentral.com]

  • Transient Ischemic Attack

    Subsequent computed tomography scan of the chest demonstrated hypo-dense myocardium infiltration with local thickening.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The appearance of the myocardium was highly characteristic of transmural cardiac metastasis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Myocardial Infarction

    At rest, most of the LV wall thickening reflects thickening of the inner layer of the myocardium.[dx.doi.org] […] will also demonstrate wall motion abnormalities, but is characteristically thin ( decreased systolic wall thickening normal wall thickening is 40% tardokinesis post-systolic[radiopaedia.org] Although the middle and outer layers of the myocardium thicken little at rest, they thicken more with catecholamine stimulation and thus contribute to overall wall thickening[dx.doi.org]

  • Acute Myocardial Infarction

    […] will also demonstrate wall motion abnormalities, but is characteristically thin ( decreased systolic wall thickening normal wall thickening is 40% tardokinesis post-systolic[radiopaedia.org] […] appropriate clinical context include: new regional wall motion abnormalities correspond to vascular territory affected adjacent segmental hyperkinesis previously infarcted myocardium[radiopaedia.org]

  • Histiocytoid Cardiomyopathy

    Ventricular noncompaction (VNC) is a rare cardiomyopathy characterized by a thickened endocardial layer of noncompacted myocardium and a thin epicardial layer of compacted[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] myocardium with two layers (one non-compacted layer and one thin compacted layer).[nursingtimes.net] […] myocardial wall with prominent trabeculae (irregular muscular columns projecting from the inner surface of the heart) and deep intratrabecular recesses, which results in a thickened[nursingtimes.net]

  • Hypertensive Crisis

    In addition to the kidney, the vascular beds of the pancreas, gastrointestinal tract, liver, retina, brain, myocardium, prostate and skeletal muscles are frequently involved[renalandurologynews.com] The arteriolar wall is thickened by homogenous eosinophilic material that narrows the lumen. Arteries may show medial hypertrophy with reduplication of elastic laminae.[renalandurologynews.com] The small arteries reveal proliferative endarteritis or onionskin lesions consisting of intimal thickening, these lesions result in moderate to severe luminal narrowing and[renalandurologynews.com]
