Types and Treatments of Cardiomyopathy

FSCAI (Int Card), FACC (Card), FACP (Int Medicine), MBBS
Cardiologist, Delhi
Types and Treatments of Cardiomyopathy

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.

How we control cholesterol and what type of food we concerned? How we avoided from cholesterol?

How we control cholesterol and what type of food we concerned? How we avoided from cholesterol?
Dear Mr. Behera, cholesterol is a natural content in many foods as well as body synthesizes the same from the lipids we consume. Saturated fats consumption result in higher cholesterol generation by the liver. So avoid deep fried material especially foods cooked in ghee (fried) or saturated vegetable oil (vanaspati ghee). Please note that consuming foods with high cholesterol written on label may not increase the blood cholesterol levels as well as foods which are low in total cholesterol can result in high cholesterol levels. Your body metabolism has a lot of roll to play. With your height and weight I believe your bmi is fairly ok. Please let me know why you are asking this question, is it due to a blood test showing high cholesterol or you want to remain healthy which is a great thing to do?

I am 39 years old suffering in high cholesterol. Please advise steps to be taken care to control.
Hello dear High triglycerides and cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Change life style .do meditation,yoga, Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily i.e.play any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress,take plenty of water in day time. And 1 glass of water before bed at night. use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. Garlic,. Cod liver oil. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

Good to know that reports are normal. It can be related to day to day stress. Yoga, meditation and a discipline in life with a positive outlook helps a person to lead a normal life taking stress as healthy stress that keeps us moving because it brings along good results which boost the morale, try this and may be you will forget about breathing problems. By the way stop smoking and exposure to pollution. Get a spirometry test also to know about power of lungs.

Hi, ladies of your age are less likely to have ischemic heart disease, especially when there are no risk factors. The pain could be muscular or arising from the joints of your chest wall, a condition called costochondritis. You can have some pain killer ointments and avoid lifting weights with left hand.

Keep practicing and do take a simple high protein diet like milk, curds & boiled eggs (if you eat) clear soups minus cream -both veg & non veg, carbs & little good fats like desi ghee and butter + a katori of assorted nuts to get ggod fats and proteins. Eat seasonal vegetables & fruits according to your constitution but no juices. Drink lots of water and ors, lemon + spoon of honey with warm water if taken on empty stomach every morning does help get rid of bad fats from blood and bad fats in blood is one of the reasons of low stamina. Take multivitamin becosule or polybion capsule one a day _ shelcal 500 mg for calcium & vitamin d for strong bones. Do deworming by taking a tablet of bandy plus so that the food eaten by you is utilized well. Take a course of metrogyl 200 mg twice daily with food for 3 days -this is again to cleanse your food pipe. Do write back after a month. As a proof for reassurance you can get basic heart tests done- ecg, halter, blood for sugar, cbc & total lipids, get back here with reports if anything is faulty, otherwise carry on with your practice.

your pain is in chest area. That doesn't mean it is concerned with heart or lung. I think your complaint is due to stress. Find out what is causing you to worry. Introspection will resolve problem.

Problems---1. Ht block, 2. Dilated aorta, high blood sugar associated. These are dangerous combination. They have released block by putting stents, but dilated aorta will give you trouble if you work hard. Only sedentary work is permitted along with full change of life style including intake of food & liquids. Sugar must be controlled with proper medicine other wise that will lead to reat catastrophy.
