Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy symptoms

  1. 1. Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy,Hypertrophic CardiomyopathySymptomsHypertrophic Cardiomyopathy It has been quite time since we wrote anything new regarding cardiac health. After our rewarded cardiac pacemaker procedure we have decided to focus today on cardiomyopathy (hypertrophic cardiomyopathy). Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is a disease of the heart muscle that does not necessarily affect the deterioration of one’s life and the course of the illness is individual. A number of people with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy during the life of feeling certain hypertrophic cardiomyopathy symptoms and due to the development and worsening of symptoms, there is the possibility of sudden death. The main characteristic of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is a thickening of the heartmuscle. Cardiac muscle can be thickened in healthy individuals as a result of high pressure orextreme sports. Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is the most common inherited disease.Microscopic examination of cardiac muscle cells we recognized the irregular arrangement ofmuscle cells and therefore the phenomenon known as myocardial confusion. The latestresearch shows that if a family member has these diseases, the possibility that its descendanthas it, is the 50%. Illness does not skip generations, and is transmitted equally to males andfemales. According to recent studies it was shown that hypertrophic cardiomyopathy disease ismore common than previously thought. According to the research of Dr. Maron in 1995thestimation is that the 1 in 500 or 1 in 1,000 people is affected by hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is seen in the thickening of the entire ventricle (ventricle) or partof it. Normal left ventricular septum dimensions are 0.8-1.2 in contrast to the increased amountfrom 1.3-6.0 cm. Thickening usually occurs in childhood or early adolescence, although thereare reported cases of detecting it at a later age.According to the thickening of ventricular there are four types of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy: ● Concentric hypertrophic cardiomyopathy ● Apical hypertrophic cardiomyopathy ● Hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy (HOCM) ● Nonobstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM)Hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy (HOCM)If the septum is much thickened during movement of blood from the left atrium (prechamber)in ventricular (ventricle), mistral valve touches the septum and the matter in the normal bloodflow causing turbulent blood flow and the phenomenon called obstruction. This blood flow is

At HOCM also featuresa special phenomenon called SAM or systolic mistral valve motion background.Nonobstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM)The most common form of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy also known under the names of HCM(hypertrophic cardiomyopathy) and IHSS (idiopathic hypertrophic subaortic stenosis) where thethickening occurs in the upper part of the septum (wall) between the left and right parts of the.The mitral valve then remains in its usual place, so there is no phenomenon called obstruction.Concentric hypertrophic cardiomyopathySymmetric or concentric hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is manifested in the thickening aroundventricle, usually the left. Due to recent research it was noted that this type of cardiomyopathyoccurs more frequently in Asia, especially in Japan.Apical hypertrophic cardiomyopathyThickening occurs at apex of the heart, i.e. the very top of the heart and it usually affects the leftside of the heart.Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy SymptomsWheezing – DyspneaDyspnea is manifested as a lack of oxygen during respiration, more correctly as the inabilityto breathe enough or your breath shortness. It mostly occurs during exertion or less physicalactivity with fatigue.Chest painThe chest pain can occur during activities as well as at rest and during sleep. It may be short-lived and can be dull and long. It happens due to lack of oxygen to the heart which needs it twork properly. Chest pain is most commonly sign of a heart attack risk.FatigueUnexplained fatigue may also be a symptom of nonobstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy,because the heart is constantly strains to be pump blood, which can result in increased need fora good night sleep.“Heart skipping”In healthy hearts sometimes heart beats irregularly, but sometimes with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy it is typical. What you feel like skipping the heart may be an early, extra or skipped beats. They can occur suddenly without any external cause, additional hypertrophic cardiomyopathy symptoms and suddenly stop. (In addition, they can be caused by fatigue, insomnia, stress, large amounts of protein coffee, tea, coca-cola) or alcohol. Irregular heart rate can be isolated

They occur as a result of irregular heartbeat, drop in blood pressure or lack of oxygen to the brain. Episodes of dizziness, loss of feeling the ground unde feet, breathing hard, cold sweat with no loss of consciousness are called syncope. U case you experience something like this it is necessary to seek medical help at once! Sweating Sweating is usually in people suffering from hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is connected to the irregular heartbeat that. This kind ofsweating is usually in the form of so-called cold sweat, which is besides tachyarrhythmiaassociated with dizziness which indicates that the heart failed to pump enough blood to thebrain.
  4. 4. The progress of disease in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, Maron and McKenna, Consensus,document of United States and Europe cardiologists, 2003rd.If the above mentioned hypertrophic cardiomyopathy symptoms occur it is very important tocontact your cardiologist, or at least your doctor. It is very important to be very firm with thisbecause hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is very dangerous condition. In next articles we will notchange our topic (cardiomyopathy), and will try educate and help all readers here. Ischemiccardiomyopathy and restrictive cardiomyopathy are the next.
