Conclusion: In this study, the significant difference between the electrocardiographic data of deceased and surviving dilated cardiomyopathy patients suggests that electrocardiographic data should be evaluated in detail in order to determine the low and high risk of mortality in patients with dilated cardiomyopathy.What is Known:•Previous studies on the relationship between limited electrocardiography data of adult patients diagnosed with DCM and mortality have been determinedWhat is New:•ECG data has not been investigated in such detail in child DCM patients,as in our study.

We present here the case of a patient transplanted due to end ‐stage arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC), fulfilling the task force criteria. A few years after successful heart transplantation (HTX), the patient developed similar symptoms and morphofunctional changes of the heart, which led to critical re‐evaluation of his primary diagno sis.

Abstract The pretransplant risk assessment for patients with ESKD who are undergoing evaluation for kidney transplant is complex and multifaceted. When considering cardiovascular disease in particular, many factors should be considered. Given the increasing incidence of kidney transplantation and the growing body of evidence addressing ESKD-specific cardiovascular risk profiles, there is an important need for a consolidated, evidence-based model that considers the unique cardiovascular challenges that these patients face. Cardiovascular physiology is altered in these patients by abrupt shifts in volume status, alt...

ConclusionsBy utilizing and inclusion/exclusion criteria, setting limits on the frequency a patient is allowed to ambulate and creating a protocol to ensure a controlled setting, patients with PACs can safely ambulate without monitoring the PA waveforms. The use of a standard dressing and immobilization technique prevents catheter dislodgement during ambulation. By increasing physical activity, patients will gain strength to help prevent deconditioning during prolonged hospitalizations

Al-KhatibAbstractMyocarditis is a major cause of sudden cardiac death (SCD) and dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) in young adults. Cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) is the established tool for the diagnosis of myocarditis, and late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) detected on CMR imaging is the strongest independent predictor of SCD, all-cause mortality, and cardiac mortality. Several other factors have been associated with SCD or cardiac transplantation including New York Heart Association functiona...

Abstract Cardiac amyloidosis or amyloid cardiomyopathy (ACM), commonly resulting from extracellular deposition of amyloid fibrils consisted of misfolded immunoglobulin light chain (AL) or transthyretin (TTR) protein, is an underestimated cause of heart failure and cardiac arrhythmias. Among the three types of cardiac amyloidosis (wild-type or familial TTR and light-chain), the wild-type (Wt) TTR-related amyloidosis (ATTR) is an increasingly recognized cause of heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF), and amyloidosis should be considered in the differential diagnosis of this heart failure group of pa...

Authors: Palladino A, Papa AA, Morra S, Russo V, Ergoli M, Rago A, Orsini C, Nigro G, Politano L Abstract Cardiomyopathy associated with dystrophinopathies - Duchenne muscular Dystrophy (DMD), Becker muscular dystrophy (BMD), X-linked dilated cardiomyopathy (XL-CM) and cardiomyopathy of Duchenne/Becker (DMD/BMD carriers - is an almost constant manifestation of these neuromuscular disorders and contribute significantly to their morbidity and mortality. Dystrophinopathic cardiomyopathy is the result of the dystrophin protein deficiency at the myocardium level, parallel to that occurring at the skeletal muscle level....

AbstractPurpose of reviewThis review summarizes the clinical characteristics and updated outcomes of primary pediatric cardiomyopathies including dilated (DCM), hypertrophic (HCM), and restrictive cardiomyopathy (RCM), and briefly discusses left ventricular non-compaction (LVNC) and arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy (ACM), primarily arrythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC).Recent findingsPediatric cardiomyopathies are diseases of the heart muscle with an estimated annual incidence of 1.1 –1.5 cases per 100,000. They are progressive in nature and are frequently caused by a genetic mutation causing a structura...
