Peripartum cardiomyopathy: A review of the literature


Peripartum cardiomyopathy is a rare and unpredictable pregnancy-related pathology. Idiopathic cardiomyopathy is characterized by a heart failure secondary to left ventricular systolic dysfunction appearing towards the end of pregnancy or in the months following delivery with a non-specific clinic presentation. Through reviewing previous research, our critical literature review wishes to bring a concise and objective summarize for a better understanding of physiopathology, evocative symptoms and knowing of factors influencing prognosis in order to standardize peripartum management. The treatment remains mainly symptomatic but other promising treatments are still in development. In conclusion, early detection and treatment allow a better cardiac function recovery reducing cardiac transplantation.(c) 2021 Elsevier Masson SAS. All rights reserved.
