Hello and hope you are doing well.

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.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
