BENGALURU : Dr Sanjaya Viswamitra said, “Today we live in a most sophisticated world. Some years back only old people used to have heart problems, but in recent times even very young people have heart problems. The health problems have never ceased to decrease.”
He was speaking on the topic ‘Cardiac Imaging’ at National College, Basavangudi, Bengaluru.

Cardiomyopathy is a progressive disease of the myocardium or heart muscle. In most cases, the heart muscle weakens and is unable to pump blood to the rest of the body as well as it should. There are many different types of cardiomyopathy caused by a range of factors, from coronary heart disease to certain drugs. These can all lead to an irregular heartbeat, heart failure, a heart valve problem or other complications.
