Abnormal heart muscle sometimes appearing suddenly (acute), sometimes present for many years or even since birth (chronic/congenital), sometimes not diagnosed until leading to heart failure.

Chest Pain

Pain most commonly musculoskeletal (in the muscles or chest wall), pulmonary (asthma or pneumonia), and idiopathic (no abnormalities found). Rarely due to cardiac disease.

Coarctation of the Aorta

When the aorta is pinched or constricted, usually between the upper and lower half of the body, obstructing blood flow to the lower part and increasing blood pressure in the upper.

Congenital Contractural Arachnodactyly

A genetic disorder that may affect many areas of the body: Long limbs and long and slender fingers and toes, joints permanently bent, muscles underdeveloped and heart defects.

Congestive Heart Failure

Poor pumping of the ventricles of the heart, resulting in fluid buildup, causing swelling in legs, ankles and other organs, such as the liver and intestinal tract, hindering their function.

Cutis Laxa

A rare genetic disorder of the connective tissues of the body causing the skin to lose its elasticity and sag. May also affect internal organs, including the blood vessels, heart and lungs.
