implications for catheter ablation of hemodynamically unstable ventricular tachycardia," Journal of the American College of Cardiology, vol.
. The reported wear time for NICM was generally longer compared to ICM in the reviewed studies [13,15,19,25,30].
Implantable defibrillators for the prevention of mortality in patients with nonischemic cardiomyopathy
: A meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials.
However, several studies still suspected the association , and the relationship between CP and heart failure was still unclear in either ischemic or nonischemic cardiomyopathy
A total of 2521 patients with LVEF of 35% or less due to either ischemic or nonischemic cardiomyopathy
and NYHA functional class II or Ill were randomized to conventional therapy plus placebo, amiodarone, or ICD.
Late gadolinium enhancement by cardiovascular magnetic resonance heralds an adverse prognosis in nonischemic cardiomyopathy
. J Am Coll Cardiol 2008; 51: 2414-21.
This type of heart failure is known as "ischemic cardiomyopathy." Dilatation of the ventricle by mechanisms unrelated to CAD, referred to as "nonischemic cardiomyopathy
" can also occur.
Ho's condition is called nonischemic cardiomyopathy
, or a weakened heart muscle.
Relevant past medical history includes previous left renal calculi requiring ureteral stenting and nonischemic cardiomyopathy
with reduced ejection fraction.
Intravenous allogeneic MSCs have been tested in a small pilot study in patients with nonischemic cardiomyopathy
Despite the nonspecific findings in the later study, the degree of LGE is significant because it is associated with the degree of LV reverse remodeling and LV dysfunction in patients with nonischemic cardiomyopathy
