Cardiomyopathy: Types and Treatments

Cardiomyopathy: Types and Treatments

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 CardiomyopathyThis 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 CardiomyopathyThis 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 CardiomyopathyThis 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.

Modes of surgery for treatment of cardiomyopathy include:

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. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Cardiologist.

My triglyceride level is >800 (125-200 normal), VLDL 160 (5-40 normal) and Uric Acid 9.3 (3.7-9.2 normal). I am NOT obese and have a moderately active lifestyle. I am 6'1 tall and 86 kg, but there is hardly much visible fat in body. I am neither a smoker nor a regular alcohol drinker (only occasional, once a week maybe). Please advise some remedies and actions to be taken.

My bp difference between diasotlic & systolic too much--usually 150/72--can this be cured? I have also Mitral valve prolapse gr 2? Suggest what to do?for bp i took sistomate & Clopotab for cholosestral.

General Physician (AM)
Alternative Medicine Specialist, Chandigarh
Mitral valve is one of the valves of the heart, whose function is to keep the blood flowing in one direction through the left side of the heart and to prevent backflow of blood when the heart contracts. MVP basically is displacement of an abnormally thickened mitral valve leaflet into the left atrium during systole .Yes the difference can be cured easily.The good news is that there is a whole array of ?natural? therapies for people with mitral valve prolapse, which can help alleviate the multiple symptoms. They range from behavioral therapies to diet modifications and nutritional supplements and alternative medicines ,Try (Homeo) Tonicard and Allium Sat Q 5-7 drops tid coupled with KALI IOD 12X (BIOCHEMIC) 4 pills 4 times a day.God bless you

I had angioplast on my heart and one rca repaired by stenting since last six month. I am just 40 years old only. What can I do for future

MD, BHMS
Homeopath, Bhilai
For your future don't drop ecosprin for single day but can take lower doses of 100 and so on as it will dilute your blood. Always go for morning walk at least 20 min and little work out, don't use refined oil but use filtered oil like ground nut, mustered, olive, rice bran, sesame and coconut for eating. Thank you.
