Cardiomyopathy refers to heart muscle disease. Here, a diseased section of wall that separates the heart chambers that pump blood out partly blocks the flow through one of them. The condition is called hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy.
To treat it, a catheter is inserted into the heart. It’s used to apply concentrated alcohol that shrinks the diseased section. Now the heart can function normally.
Cardiomyopathy is a general term for diseases of the heart muscle, where the walls of the heart chambers have become stretched, thickened or stiff. This affects the heart’s ability to pump blood around the body.
The abnormal heart muscle seen in cardiomyopathy is not caused by blocked arteries in the heart (coronary artery disease), high blood pressure (hypertension), disease of the heart valves (valvular disease) or congenital heart disease.
Most types of cardiomyopathy are inherited and are seen in children and younger people.
