Abstract

Peripartum cardiomyopathy is a form of dilated cardiomyopathy that is defined as deterioration in cardiac function presenting typically between the last month of pregnancy and up to five months postpartum. As with other forms of dilated cardiomyopathy, PPCM involves systolic dysfunction of the heart with a decrease of the left ventricular ejection fraction with associated congestive heart failure. In heart failure sinus tachycardia is a poor prognostic factor and the common symptom. In this paper, we presented a case treated with ivabradine which provided additional benefit in patient with acute heart failure.
