Recurrence of tako-tsubo syndrome, idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy, and iterative ventricular tachycardia: just a fortuitous coincidence or a pathophysiological link?
 

Author(s): F Rotondi, F Manganelli, M Capasso, T Lanzillo, G Bellizzi, R Sauro

Journal: Eur Rev Med Pharmacol Sci. 2013 Nov;17(22):3117-20.

 

We report the case of a 65-year-old woman with late recurrence of tako-tsubo syndrome, idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy and prior iterative ventricular tachycardia. We hypothesize that the pathophysiological link among these clinical conditions could be the hyperactivity of the sympathetic ...

Reversible dilated cardiomyopathy caused by idiopathic hypoparathyroidism.
 

Author(s): Youn Joo Jung, Sung Eun Kim, Ji Yeon Hong, Jun Hee Lee, Dae Gyun Park, Kyoo Rok Han, Dong Jin Oh

Journal: Korean J. Intern. Med.. 2013 Sep;28(5):605-8.

 

Dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) is usually an idiopathic disease with a poor prognosis. Hypocalcemia is a rare and reversible cause of DCM. Here, we report a 50-year-old female with DCM, induced by idiopathic hypoparathyroidism, that improved after treatment with calcium.

Recent insights into the role of autoimmunity in idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy.
 

Author(s): Jason M Lappé, Clara M Pelfrey, W H Wilson Tang

Journal: J. Card. Fail.. 2008 Aug;14(6):521-30.

 

Dilated cardiomyopathy is a devastating disease associated with poor outcomes. Although the etiology of this disease remains largely unknown, so-called "idiopathic" dilated cardiomyopathy (iDCM) is associated with evidence of an autoimmune process that may be contributing to the pathophysiology ...

Author(s): Francisco José Farias Borges Dos Reis, Tiago Almeida de Sousa, Manoela S Oliveira, Ney Dantas, Martha Silveira, Maria Ignês Freitas Melro Braghiroly, Raymundo Paraná

Journal: Braz J Infect Dis. 2006 Jun;10(3):199-202.

 

Recent studies have suggested that some patients with idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy (IDC) are also afflicted with insidious forms of viral myocarditis. Participation of hepatitis C virus (HCV) in this process has been postulated. The objective of this study was to evaluate a possible ...
