In this clinical setting, the electrical storm has been durably suppressed in patients with ischemic and nonischemic cardiomyopathy
Miyake, "Late gadolinium enhancement on cardiac magnetic resonance images predicts reverse remodeling in patients with nonischemic cardiomyopathy
treated with carvedilol," International Journal of Cardiology, vol.
ICDs have clearly been established as the single most effective therapy in primary prevention of SCD in patients with LV systolic dysfunction, either due to ischemic or nonischemic cardiomyopathy
Magnetic resonance assessment of the substrate for inducible ventricular tachycardia in nonischemic cardiomyopathy
The authors looked into the relationship between papillary muscle dyssynchrony (PMD) assessed by echocardiography and degree of "functional" mitral regurgitation in patients with nonischemic cardiomyopathy
with low ejection fraction.
However, amlodipine, a dihydropyridine calcium channel blocker, has been shown to improve survival in patients with nonischemic cardiomyopathy
and could have an important role in the management of patients with PPCM.
Their average age was 56, and about 23% of patients had structural heart disease, most commonly nonischemic cardiomyopathy
These patients (non-CAD group, controls) had various diseases, including nonischemic chest pain (23%), valvular disease (13%), nonischemic cardiomyopathy
(18%), and nonischemic arrhythmias (38%), and served as controls.
