Management of Cardiac Involvement Associated With Neuromuscular Diseases

  • For many neuromuscular diseases (NMDs), cardiac disease represents a major cause of morbidity and mortality.
  • Managing cardiac disease in patients with NMDs is challenged by the broad clinical heterogeneity among many NMDs and by limited knowledge about disease specific cardiovascular pathogenesis, and consequently course-modifying interventions.
  • This scientific statement provides background on several NMDs with cardiac involvement, and highlights unique clinical features for clinicians to tailor their treatment approaches to prevent or treat heart failure.
