Congestive cardiomyopathy (DCM) is the most common type of cardiomyopathy, a group of heart diseases that affect the heart’s muscles. The condition is characterised by the enlargement of the heart, which keeps the left ventricle, the heart’s main pumping chamber, from efficiently pumping blood.
Patients with DCM are advised to seek immediate medical attention to prevent the condition from worsening and serious complications from developing. They are encouraged to consult a cardiologist with easy access to advanced diagnostics and therapeutic equipment for the proper management of their condition.
Some of the best cardiologists specialising in congestive cardiomyopathy are in Southeast Asian countries, namely Singapore, Thailand, and Malaysia. These countries are home to many world-class and multi-awarded hospitals that are known worldwide for delivering trusted quality healthcare that meets international standards. In the field of cardiac care, some of the main players in the region are the National Heart Centre Singapore, Bumrungrad Heart Centre at Bumrungrad International Hospital, and Gleneagles Kuala Lumpur’s cardiac centre (Malaysia). All these hospitals are accredited by the Joint Commission International (JCI) and are staffed by heart specialists who have studied in countries such as the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Belgium, Germany, and Australia, among others. These groups of specialists are comprised of cardiac rehabilitation professionals, paediatric cardiologists, and heart surgeons who are highly qualified to manage and treat all patients, including children and adults, who suffer from common and complex cases of congestive cardiomyopathy. The hospitals are also fully equipped to perform a complete range of cardiac diagnostic investigations to accurately diagnose the condition. They also feature state-of-the-art cardiac catheterisation laboratories, cardiac surgery operating theatres, monitoring units, and dedicated care units that feature the most advanced technology and facilities allowing them to offer congestive cardiomyopathy patients comprehensive treatment from assessment through recovery.
