Is it curable ever or, you have to live with precaution till death?
My report of Echocardiographt doppler study is:
Poor root dance AORTA and Valve, Valve is Normal.
Impression : Dialated Cardiomyopathy changes.
Left Ventricular cavity dialation, Global Left ventricular wall hypokinaesia, Poor left ventricular systolic function, Mitral Ring Dialation. Colour Doppler findings are within normal limits. Other blood reports are normal.
Pressure, pulse are normal.
Systolic internal dimension 4.4cm Limit stated 2.5 to 4.1 cm
LVEF : ejection fraction : 47% Normal limit : 65% to 75%.
Posterior & Septal wall thickness (Diast) : 1.1cm, Normal limit : 0.6 to 1.1cm in both cases.
Hypokinesis is decreased movement, this could be due to the dilated cardiomyopathy and this in turn will reduce the cardiac output/ejection fraction. The left ventricle hypokinesis global refers to a condition in which the left ventricle of the heart shows wall motion irregularity. This condition is not curable. So, the treatment is usually symptomatic, whether the symptoms are due to heart failure or irregular heartbeats. Medications and Implantable devices are used to treat these conditions. If they fail, then heart transplant is considered.
