In brief: Yes
A cardiomyopathy implies a condition where the muscle tissue of the heart does not contract in amanner efficient enough to meet its demands.
The weakned heart muscle can be caused by many etiologies, heart attacks, viruses, toxins, etc. When it is labled idiopathic it means the exact cause is unknown.

In brief: No cause found
Cardiomyopathy is a heart condition highlighted by a weak heart muscle causing heart failure .
When no cause such as coronary disease, toxins like alcohol etc are not found it is termed "idiopathic" cardiomyopathy. Hope this helps!
