Cardiomyopathies or heart muscle diseases are less frequent than a few common ones like ischemic, hypertension, valvular etc. But there are some critical myocardial conditions occurring due to multiple causes, holding high morbidity and mortality which become challenging for physicians and doctors. This book deals with cardiomyopathies, their characteristics, physiopathology and their connection with sudden death. Some related aspects such as echocardiographic findings, myocardial contractile reserve and molecular mechanisms have also been discussed in the book. Emphasis has been laid on its occurrence among diabetic people and women, and also discusses heart failure and dilated cardiomyopathy.
