Abstract

Cardiovascular complications are common and varied in neuromuscular diseases. Knowledge of the complications specific to each disease is essential for appropriate screening for cardiovascular disease. Appropriate treatment of complications varies between neuromuscular diseases and draws primarily on experience from patients without neuromuscular disease. This article details the known cardiovascular complications and treatments for some of the major neuromuscular diseases.
