In brief: Not Clear...
Dilated cardiomyopathy, as far as we understand, comes in four broad categories.
.. Genetic, infectious, ischemic, toxic. The term dilated cardiomyopathy describes how the heart looks and squeezes... Dilated, stretched out... Ie a balloon that has been over inflated for weeks, when the air is let out it is much larger than it's original size and doesn't have the same elastic properties.
