I am a 64 yr old woman with systolic and diystolic cardiomyopathy. I have a large liploma in my right atrium measuring 3.7 centimeters They attributed my atruial flutter with this, can this be contributing to my cardiomyopathy also?

I don’t know the answer to your question. Have you asked your doctor? Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is generally caused by a genetic mutation though they have recently identified another subset which is not genetic and is identified later. Your Cardiomyopathy sounds like it may be a different type.

I recently did ask about the liploma and he said it is not related to my cardiomyopathy and 30% of patients there is not a specific reason as to what caused it. But I do thank you for responding. I don't know other than what he told me that it is both dystolic and systolic.
Sorry it took so long to read this. I thought it was lost out there or I didn't post it correctly so I have not been checking it.
