Abstract

Outcome in patients with peripartum cardiomyopathy (PPCM) is variable. Recovery of left ventricular function is observed in between 23% and 51% of cases at six months after diagnosis. Despite standard medical therapy, both morbidity and mortality remain high. Recent evidence has suggested that dopamine-receptor agonists may be beneficial in the treatment of this condition. We describe a case of a patient with PPCM who developed rapid normalisation of left ventricular function following addition of carbergoline, a long-acting dopamine-receptor agonist, to her conventional heart failure therapy.
