Nonischemic Cardiomyopathy Prognosis
Clinical Trial Now: Use of adult mesenchymal stem-stromal cells (mscs) are currently in clinical trial in us/internationally. Trend is toward use of fat derived mscs, havested by liposuction, isolated and concentrated in tissue culture. Early reports suggest significant improvement in neurological, autoimmune and organ functions. Many more mscs in fat than bone marrow making ad-msc the center of most research now.See 2 more doctor answers
Hypertrophic or...: Hypertrophic or dilated cardiomyopathy can both result with hypertrophy generally occurring first.
Typically not good: There are several causes of restrictive cardiomyopathy, so the prognosis is variable, but is typically limited due to progression of heart failure and potential for heart rhythm problems. Depending on the cause, there are certain medications and other therapies available. Some people may be able to pursue heart transplantation, depending on the cause.See 1 more doctor answer
Generally poor: Stage 4 dilated cadiomyopathy has a generally poor prognosis with the two year survival being about 20-40% at best.
I'm a 43 yo female who was just diagnosis with diastolic hypertrophic cardiomyopathy I have sever sob and edema what is long term prognosis?
Hard to say: First: hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is a diastolic disease so no need to specify that. Second: betablocker meds are the treatment of choice - you didn't list any. Third, if meds fail, surgery may be indicated. 4th - prognosis is based on severity (based on echo) - you didn't list that test.
Not so good: Prognosis depends on multiple factors, not just ejection fraction. Age, severity of symptoms, and especially cause of cardiomyopathy. Cardiac function may improve in some with treatment. Severely symptomatic heart failure carries a worse prognosis. Best would be to discuss this with a heart failure specialist.
What is the prognosis for cardiomyopathy from hypothyroidism? I'm not sure I have either, could be my anxiety but I get chest pains often, winded quickly
Hypothyroidism: And cardiac involvement (myxedema) does improve very well with correction of hypothyroidism. It usually does not cause CP but it does cause decreased tolerance to activity and effusion.
What is the prognosis for a 51 year old with stage 3 heart failure from idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy? This was before bivent icd.
BiV changes everythi: Resynchronization with a bi-v pacemaker has changed the landscape. Have your ef rechecked several months after the implantation. It may be normal now. If so, your prognosis is excellent.
My husband has alcoholic cardiomyopathy, fatty liver and high blood pressure. His heart beats rapidly without his medication. What is his prognosis?
What is the prognosis for advanced liver cirrhosis and congestive heart failure due to alcoholic cardiomyopathy, ef 10, asceties, kidney impairment?
Poor: Not good I'm afraid. The cardiac output alone is reaching a point of non-compatibility with life.
Cardiomyopathy: Cardiomyopathy is weakness of the heart muscles sometimes leading to heart failure. Can be ischemic cardiomyopathy which is due to narrowing of the blood vessels of your heart or can be non-ischemic which can be due to a variety of causes including hypertension, viral infection, or metabolic diseases (amyloidosis/sarcoidosis) among other things. Hope this helps.
Consider sarcoidosis: Sacoidosis can cause diffuse micronodular changes in lung tissue and in the less common cases of cardiac infiltration a dilated nonischemic cardiomyopathy (may also cause a restrictive cm). Other possibilities include viral or other chronic inflammatory conditions which affect the lungs and heart simultaneously.
Can someone please describe nonischemic cardiomyopathy? My record shows hypertrophic and nonischemic cardiomyopathy a and chf? Really concerned
Multiple reasons: Non ischemic means it is not from lack of blood supply to the heart. Hypertrophic impies the heart size is getting larger. CHF implies the heart is starting to fail. One cause of this is prolonged hypertension, but there are multiple causes. Discuss with your cardiologist.See 1 more doctor answer
Various causes: Cardiomyopathy is a generic term for abnormal heart muscle. It can be caused by infections, poisons, genetics, and physiologic causes. There are both weak heart and 'strong heart' cardiomyopathies. The cause of someone's cardiomyopathy requires more information than the term cardiomyopathy.See 2 more doctor answers
