Non dilated cardiomyopthy : An under diagnosed entity !

Posted Jul 09 2009 4:45pm

How will you refer to a ventricle which is not dilated but still has severe global contractile dysfunction ?

Traditionally cardiomyopathy is classified as

  • Dilated (DCM)
  • Hypertrophic(HCM)
  • Restrictive (RCM)

But there is large group of pateints who do not show any of the above features and still have global hypokinesia  contractile dysfunction. this group has been largely ignored .It could constitute up to 25%of all cardiomyopathy.there can be some overlap between non dialted cardiomyopathy and RCM.
