What Is the Prognosis for Cardiomyopathy?

Although there is no cure, the prognosis is good for individuals with cardiomyopathy, as medications, artificial devices and surgery provide adequate relief. Cardiomyopathy, a disease of the heart, responds well to various treatment methods. Relief for symptoms varies, depending on the type of cardiomyopathy, and includes pacemakers, angiotensin-converting-enzyme inhibitors and diuretics, and procedures including myectomy, ablation and open-heart surgery.
