People suffering from Myocardium Disorders may benefit from one or more of the following treatment options.
Heart Medications – Heart medications like beta blockers, calcium channel blockers and digoxin may be given to individuals with myocardium disorders to prevent progression to heart failure.
Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD) – An ICD may be implanted in the chest of an individual with a myocardium disorder who is considered to be at high risk for sudden cardiac death. ICD’s work by sending a sudden “punch” of an electric shock to the heart when the heart stops; thereby preventing sudden cardiac death. Some cases of Ventricular Hypertrophy may require 2 ICD’s in both ventricular chambers.
Angioplasty and Stenting – This procedure makes use of cardiac catheter where the flexible tube is brought to the area of the constricted artery. A balloon is inflated from within and a mesh stent is left to keep the vessel patent. This is preferred in myocardium disorders that result from myocardial infarction.
Coronary Bypass – This procedure requires an open heart surgery in which an alternate vessel is used to connect both healthy coronary vessels and bypass the obstructed coronaries to help ensure continuous blood flow to the myocardium.
