Home Circulation Vol. Enzyme replacement therapy with agalsidase beta has been reported to decrease LV wall thickness, decrease LV mass, and result in improved LV systolic and diastolic function (76–79). 23. Recent data support the benefit of implantable cardioverter-defibrillators for primary prevention of sudden cardiac death (SCD) (60). Yumoto F., Lu Q.W., Morimoto S.et al. Ann Thorac Surg 2001; 72: 924. CMR often provides additional diagnostic information due to its ability to detect subendocardial fibrosis and its greater sensitivity for ventricular thrombus detection (Figure 1) (29,30). Most patients with clinical HF, however, exhibit a dilated cardiomyopathy phenotype. Cecchetti G., Binda A., Piperno A.et al.

Ng B., Connors L.H., Davidoff R.et al. Echocardiography may show endomyocardial thickening, ventricular apical obliteration, and involvement of the posterior mitral leaflet (28). Secondary restrictive cardiomyopathies are subclassified as infiltrative, noninfiltrative, and storage disorders. LV filling pulsed Doppler may show impaired relaxation (E/A ratio <1), pseudonormalization, or a restrictive filling pattern (short E deceleration time), which correlate with stage of progression, symptoms, and prognosis. : "The abbreviated PR interval of Fabry's disease". Patients with restrictive cardiomyopathies and constrictive pericarditis are often excluded or under-represented in large randomized clinical trials (2,5,6), making it difficult to make inferences from the prognostic and treatment features that apply to other HFpEF patients. Maceira A.M., Joshi J., Prasad S.K.et al. Desnick R.J., Brady R., Barranger J.et al. Recognizing these syndromes is important because early diagnosis may lead to instituting specific therapy that may prolong survival, improve quality of life, and/or recognize and treat an underlying systemic disorder. Implantable cardioverter-defibrillators are used for prevention of SCD, but a survival benefit has not been demonstrated. Vrana J.A., Gamez J.D., Madden B.J.et al. In patients who are anemic, iron chelation therapy with either deferoxamine, deferasirox, or deferiprone is the treatment of choice. As of today, more than 80 mutations have been described. 22. This paper reviews this latter group. Kaski J.P., Syrris P., Burch M.et al. Constrictive pericarditis versus restrictive cardiomyopathy… Diastolic mitral and tricuspid regurgitation was also more common in the patients with restrictive cardiomyopathy. 94. BNP for Differentiating Constrictive Pericarditis vs Restrictive Cardiomyopathy. ∗ Highly sensitive findings with low specificity.

Schweiz Med Wochenschr 1936; 66: 817. 64. Patients with Constrictive Pericarditis do not present for typical pericarditis symptoms. Diagnosis of systemic amyloidosis may be attempted with rectal submucosal or abdominal fat pad biopsy. Klein A.L. See Figure 7-3 B for the CVP tracing during constrictive pericarditis. Many of these disorders are associated with extracardiac manifestations including developmental delay. Novel pharmacological, immunologic, and surgical therapies are leading to improved quality of life and survival. 82. The differential diagnosis of the restrictive cardiomyopathies includes constrictive pericarditis, a syndrome that has a similar insidious clinical presentation and shares many common features in diagnostic imaging tests (4). QJM 1998; 91: 141. Whereas hypertension, coronary artery disease, and/or abnormal vascular compliance are identified as the cause in most patients with HFpEF (2), as many as 10% to 15% have a restrictive cardiomyopathy, a group of conditions with diverse etiologies characterized by intrinsic abnormalities of the myocyte and/or the intercellular matrix that result in impaired left ventricular (LV) relaxation and/or increased LV stiffness (3).

Endomyocardial biopsy shows disruption of normal muscle fiber architecture, with loss of z-lines and myosin filaments, and abundant curvilinear bodies, lysosomes, myeloid bodies, and glycogen granules located between myofibrils and perinuclear areas (61). Early in the course of the disease, ECG and echocardiographic findings resemble those of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, including symmetric LV hypertrophy, abnormal myocardial relaxation, and LV outflow obstruction (90). This is followed by an intermediate phase associated with LV and RV thrombus formation. Circ Cardiovasc Imaging 2013; 6: 195. 27.

EMF is endemic in tropical and subtropical Africa, Asia, and South America, but is also occasionally encountered outside the tropics (23–25). Nevertheless, none of these findings are sufficiently sensitive or specific. More recently, a unique global longitudinal strain pattern with apical sparing has been associated with cardiac amyloidosis. Schoenfeld M.H., Supple E.W., Dec G.W.et al. Hypereosinophia syndromes, associated with parasitic infection or hematological malignancy result in a similar presentation with obliterative apical fibrosis and thrombus. Sodium restriction and diuretic agents are useful to reduce edema and hepatic congestion in patients with mild pericardial constriction (98), although pericardiectomy may eventually be required to normalize cardiac output (92,99–102).

The restrictive cardiomyopathies have been traditionally classified as primary or secondary to other diseases, such as storage or infiltrative disorders (3). Symptoms are largely mediated by reduced left ventricular compliance and diastolic dysfunction. A comprehensive review of TTR amyloidosis was recently published in the Journal(39). Decreased venous return from the superior vena cava, which is exposed, is the hemodynamic alteration that produces Kussmaul’s sign (111). Instead, they present with symptoms of heart failure and so this can often be a challenge for even very skilled sonographers to identify the subtle differences between Restrictive Cardiomyopathy and Constrictive Pericarditis.

Eur Heart J 2007; 28: 1228. In infiltrative disorders, abnormal deposits occur in the interstitial space, whereas in storage disorders, deposits occur within the cell. Diagnosis and dynamic evaluation with multidetector CT". Cardiac amyloidosis is associated with short subendocardial T1 times and a distinctive pattern of diffuse, predominantly subendocardial and mid-myocardial delayed gadolinium late enhancement (Figure 2) (48). Gertz M.A., Falk R.H., Skinner M.et al. Circulation 1999; 100: 1380. Atrial fibrillation is common. Patients who received mediastinal radiation for malignancy develop a number of radiation-related complications including constrictive pericarditis and myocardial fibrosis, which may lead to a restrictive-type cardiomyopathy. Myocardial iron deposition results in lower T2 times, with decreased myocardial signals on T2-weighted images (Figure 4) (84). Diuretic therapy is necessary for volume control; however, there is an increased likelihood of hypotension and renal insufficiency in these patients. Direct endomyocardial biopsy can achieve nearly 100% sensitivity if a minimum of 4 samples are obtained during the biopsy procedure (51). However, significant respiratory variation of mitral, tricuspid, pulmonary, and hepatic flows occurs only with constriction. Five major clinical types of cardiac amyloidosis are recognized, each associated with a different precursor protein. On echocardiography studies, tissue Doppler typically demonstrates reduced early diastolic myocardial velocity (e′). In both constrictive pericarditis and in advanced restrictive cardiomyopathy, the deceleration time of the LV early filling pulsed Doppler is short, consistent with a restrictive filling … : "Outcome of idiopathic restrictive cardiomyopathy in children".
