  • Secondary endpoints will evaluate the alteration in NYHA functional class, mortality rate, physical capacity (by ergoespirometry), life quality (Minnesota questionnaire) and pulmonary congestion in dilated cardiomyopathy patients the received the autologous bone-marrow stem cell implant. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • These might include: Shortness of breath Syncope (fainting) Angina, but only in the presence of ischemic heart disease A person suffering from dilated cardiomyopathy may have an enlarged heart, with pulmonary edema and an elevated jugular venous pressure and a low pulse pressure.

  • disease
  • Dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) is a disease of the heart muscle that is characterized by an enlarged heart that does not function properly. (petmd.com)
  • In adults, coronary artery disease, which is rare in childhood, is a common cause of the cardiomyopathy and explains some of the differences between the rates in childhood versus adulthood. (medpagetoday.com)
  • Thyroid disease Inflammatory diseases such as sarcoidosis and connective tissue diseases Tachycardia-induced cardiomyopathy Muscular dystrophy Tuberculosis - 1 to 2% of TB cases. (wikipedia.org)
  • Alterations in the localization and expression levels of beta-catenin have been associated with various forms of heart disease, including dilated cardiomyopathy. (wikipedia.org)
  • develop
  • Autoimmune mechanisms Recent studies have shown that those subjects with an extremely high occurrence (several thousands a day) of premature ventricular contractions (extrasystole) can develop dilated cardiomyopathy. (wikipedia.org)
  • animals
  • In TSP-2 KO animals, age-related cardiomyopathy was accompanied by increased matrix metalloproteinase-2 and decreased tissue transglutaminase-2 activity, together with impaired collagen cross-linking. (ahajournals.org)
  • include
  • Alcohol abuse (alcoholic cardiomyopathy) Nonalcoholic toxic insults include administration of certain chemotherapeutic agents, in particular doxorubicin (Adriamycin), and cobalt. (wikipedia.org)

  • We used the myocardial marker method to evaluate anterior and posterior leaflet geometry changes during the evolution of heart failure in an ovine model of tachycardia-induced cardiomyopathy (TIC). (ahajournals.org)
