This is a multi-omics research of Chinese cardiomyopathies patients, aiming to determine genetic risk factor and serial biomarkers of cardiomyopathies in diagnosis and prognosis.
This study aims to 1)characterize the differentially expressed metabolites between cardiomyopathy patients and healthy controls,2)identify the specific biomarkers associated with outcomes ...
Vitamin D deficiency could be a high risk for cardiovascular diseases. It has been recently reported that vitamin D deficiency is another cause of heart failure and cardiomyopathies. It w...
The purpose of this study is to determine the genetic basis of cardiomyopathies and heart failure.
Dilated cardiomyopathy is a heart muscle disorder characterized by systolic dysfunction and dilation of the left or both ventricles.Dilated cardiomyopathy can develop in people of any age ...
The differential diagnosis of cardiomyopathy is important. It has been recently reported that urinary titin N (U-TN) is increased in patients with muscular dystrophy (MD), and is associated with muscu...
Dilated cardiomyopathy is the second most common cardiac disease in dogs and causes considerable morbidity and mortality. Primary dilated cardiomyopathy is suspected to be familial, and genetic loci h...
Some authors have hypothesized that left ventricular chamber dilatation in ischaemic and idiopathic cardiomyopathies results in spherical transformation. Aiming to characterize how this transformation...
Sarcomere cardiomyopathies are genetic diseases that perturb contractile function and lead to hypertrophic or dilated myocardial remodeling. Identification of preclinical mutation carriers has yielded...
Atrial fibrillation (AF) often complicates the course of inherited cardiomyopathies and, in some cases, may be the presenting feature. Each inherited cardiomyopathy has its own peculiar pathogenetic c...
A group of diseases in which the dominant feature is the involvement of the CARDIAC MUSCLE itself. Cardiomyopathies are classified according to their predominant pathophysiological features (DILATED CARDIOMYOPATHY; HYPERTROPHIC CARDIOMYOPATHY; RESTRICTIVE CARDIOMYOPATHY) or their etiological/pathological factors (CARDIOMYOPATHY, ALCOHOLIC; ENDOCARDIAL FIBROELASTOSIS).
Inflammatory processes of the muscular walls of the heart (MYOCARDIUM) which result in injury to the cardiac muscle cells (MYOCYTES, CARDIAC). Manifestations range from subclinical to sudden death (DEATH, SUDDEN). Myocarditis in association with cardiac dysfunction is classified as inflammatory CARDIOMYOPATHY usually caused by INFECTION, autoimmune diseases, or responses to toxic substances. Myocarditis is also a common cause of DILATED CARDIOMYOPATHY and other cardiomyopathies.
The condition of an anatomical structure's being dilated beyond normal dimensions.
Deficiencies or mutations in the genes for the SARCOGLYCAN COMPLEX subunits. A variety of phenotypes are associated with these mutations including a subgroup of autosomal recessive limb girdle muscular dystrophies, cardiomyopathies, and respiratory deficiency.
A benign neoplasm of fibrous tissue in which there are numerous small and large, frequently dilated, vascular channels. (Stedman, 25th ed)
