Types and Treatments of Cardiomyopathy

FSCAI (Int Card), FACC (Card), FACP (Int Medicine), MBBS

Cardiomyopathy includes diseases involving the heart muscle. These diseases have various causes, types, symptoms and modes of treatment.

The heart muscle gets enlarged, thick or rigid. In several cases, the heart muscle tissue is replaced with a scar tissue. As this condition worsens, the heart gets weaker and the ability to pump blood is disrupted, which can cause heart failure or irregular beating of the heart. The weakened state of the heart can lead to valvar diseases.

The different types of cardiomyopathy are:

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy-
This is a common form and affects people of all ages. Men and women are affected equally. This condition arises due to the enlargement and thickening of the heart muscle. The ventricles, the septum and the lower heart chamber usually thicken, which causes obstruction in pumping of blood by the heart. This disease also causes stiffness in the ventricles, and cellular changes in the tissue.
Dilated cardiomyopathy-
This form of cardiomyopathy develops due to the enlargement and weakening of the ventricles. The issue arises from the left ventricle and develops over time. It may even affect the right ventricle. More effort is put in by the heart muscles for pumping blood and slowly the heart is unable to pump blood effectively. This condition may lead to heart failure, valve diseases or blood clots in the heart.
Restrictive cardiomyopathy-
This disease occurs due to the stiffening of the ventricles, without thickening of the walls of the heart. The ventricles are not allowed to relax and do not receive a sufficient volume of blood supply. This condition causes heart failure and valvar problems over time.
Arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia-
This rare form of cardiomyopathy occurs when fat or fibrous tissues replace the muscle tissue of the right ventricle. This causes arrhythmias and disruption in the electrical signals of the heart. It generally affects teens and may cause cardiac arrest in athletes.
Unclassified cardiomyopathy-
Some types of cardiomyopathy of this category include left ventricular non compaction where the ventricles develop trabeculations. Takotsubo cardiomyopathy is another disease where immense stress causes failure of the heart muscles.

Treatment-
Many cases of cardiomyopathy come and go away on their own. Treatment for other cases depends on the severity and symptoms. The major treatment methods are:
Lifestyle changes meant for a healthier heart.
Medication.
Nonsurgical methods.
Surgery and implants

Modes of surgery for treatment of cardiomyopathy include:
Septal myectomy
Heart transplant
Implant devices such as cardiac resynchronization therapy (crt) device, implantable cardioverter defibrillator (icd), left ventricular assist device and pacemakers are fitted into the heart for better performance.

Cardiomyopathy can be of many different types, each arising from different situations and conditions. The mode of treatment depends on the severity of the complication or on the basis of symptoms.

Pain in chest by default indicates heart problem. So go to a good doctor and get yourself checked for heart. If heart is ok, then he/she will check you for acidity, muscular problem, liver problem etc. But chest pain should never be neglected.

Hello. I am Rajat. I am 19 years old. My height is 5" 1' I want to be a Mixed Martial Fighter and I train really hard for that. I want to ask 2 things. Firstly, is it safe to train like a beast. I workout like a beast. I mostly do calisthenics like push-ups, pull-ups, squads, etc. On extreme level. Will it do some damage to my body, especially in long term? I do it in very high intensity but with proper technique. Second, I want to increase my height. Will such workout affect my height negatively? Will this reduce my scope of increasing height? Please suggest me something. I am really very serious about it. Any help will be highly appreciated. Thanks.

I am a 40 years old male having Hypertension for the past 5 years I was taking Telma 40 morning and amlong 5 mg evening for the last three years a week ago my BP suddenly shot up to 190/100 I was feeling dizzy and my heart was pounding very fast this lasted for half and hour. The next day I got and ECG and 2D Echo done which was normal but the TMT test showed positive for induced ischemia. On the Doctor's advice I got a coronary angiogram done which showed mild coronary artery disease but no blocks there was slight plaque build up in the arteries the doctor changed my medicine to cilamet xl 10/50 to be taken morning and ecosprin av 20/75 to be taken in afternoon. It has been 3 days and I still get sudden panic attacks where I feel chill feeling on my hands and feeling of irregular heart beat this last for about 15 minutes and subsides. The doctor has now added ZAPIZ 0.5 to be taken in evening. With this I am not feeling the panic/anxiety symptoms. Is this sudden feeling of panic/anxiety attack due to cilamet xl? I also seem to be having gasses forming in my stomach after meals the doctor has prescribed Razo D please let me know if the problem I am facing in Gastric or BP medication or Psychological?

I get chest pains and cough many times and I do smoke and I am not able to quit smoking.Please tell.
Dear Lybrate user, smoking is a choice and all choices are made by us. You can quit smoking only if you tell yourself that you can do it. Not when you accept in your mind that "you are not able to quit". You must have taken many challenges in your life - I am sure you don't want to be called a loser at this as well. You have detailed about having cough and chest pains- Its possible that you may develop infection like tuberculosis or later if you don't quit - the risk of lung cancer is also very high. Make the right choice- quit today.

Yesterday I was suffering from irregular bowl movements means stomach was unclear even after two or three motions. After that I felt panic like high breath & high heart beat. I also felt like local anesthesia at my face and mouth muscles. I couldn't sleep whole night. It has happened time and again sometimes more and sometimes a little whenever I suffered from this stomach problem. This time it was severe. Why my mouth muscles and heart beat behave abnormal due to this stomach issue. Pls advice.

Please try the following: Eat a very light dinner without spices, fried foods and no foods that are acidic and heavy to digest (non-veg, rajma, chole, besan bhaji etc) Chew your food slowly and make sure you drink plenty of water. Make sure you have eaten dinned at least 2 hours before sleeping and preferably by 830 pm. His will reduce the pressure on your stomach and digestion before you sleep. During the day, make sure you are drinking plenty of water. This will help wash out acidity in few days. Get a lot of walking exercise and try deep breathing. These should help you. In case there is no change in health, you may have to undertake few investigations like abdominal sonography and endoscopy to determine extent of ailment. Do let us know how you feel in few days.

Yes, you can. But it is not without risk. I suggest a ct angiogram if you are keen to know about the coronaries. But why? if you have any problems the cardiologist will advice you. Relax and see your doctor regularly. Dr. Benedict bangalore.

Dear Lybrateuser, -From your symptoms it appears that you are stressed & have anxiety -some lifestyle changes will make you feel better, do not miss breakfast as it gives a boost to the metabolism & the energy to start your day & work, a low blood sugar leads to decreased concentration, irritability & lethargy, have a combination of a whole grain, like brown/multigrain bread & an egg or yogurt with fresh fruits, milk with oats/ cereals & fruits, eat meals on time, can even have a light snack in between meals like a sandwich, sprouts, a fruit, apple, wholegrain crackers, yogurt -have 7-8 glasses of water a day, good hydration keeps one alert & energized & also helps in removing toxins from the body -do regular exercise like walking, jogging for 20-30 min, also do yoga, meditation & deep breathing for 10-15 min in the morning as these calm your mind, reduce stress & help you keep fit -sleep well for 7-8 hrs at night, keep your sleep & wake up time fixed, eat dinner at least 2-3 hrs before bedtime, a good sleep keeps you fresh the next day, do not nap for more than 30 min in the day -keep your mind busy by reading, listening to music, follow a hobby, socialize -get your blood hemogram, sugar, thyroid homone levels checked -plan your work a day earlier & keep follow timings properly so that there is no stress & mind is relaxed.
