Dr. William Scott answered

Specializes in Pediatric Cardiology

The treatment for dilated cardiomyopathy depends upon the severity of the condition and ranges from medicines to device therapy to cardiac transplantation. Some cases, such as those secondary to viral infections, may improve over time, but most do not. The escalation of therapy depends upon the severity of the condition and the rate at which it is progressing.
