ischemic cardiomyopathy

Cardiology A disorder caused by myocardial hypoxia, which compromises the heart's ability to efficiently pump blood; IC may cause heart failure and is a complication of cardiac ischemia, especially affecting older ♂, a disparity that ↓ with advancing geezhood Risks factors Personal or family Hx of MI, angina, unstable angina, ASHD, or other CAD; HTN, smoking, DM, high fat diet, ↑ cholesterol, obesity, stress can all precipitate IC Management rGH improves hemodynamics, clinical function. See Growth hormone.

Although our patient had no significant past medical history, we speculate that his LV thrombus was secondary to his ischemic cardiomyopathy. The thrombus became firmly attached to the left ventricle, enhancing the underlying myocardial scar, limiting potential infarct expansion, and partially protecting against LV rupture.

Clinical role and indications for CMR Ischemic cardiomyopathy
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.
