Background: The aim of this study is to assess the prevalence of cardiomyopathy (CMP) between 2006 and 2014 in Korea.
Methods: Data were collected from the Korean National Health Insurance Service from 2006 through 2014. These data consisted of primary diagnoses related to CMP regardless of other conditions. CMP included dilated CMP (DCM)), hypertrophic CMP (HCMP), and restrictive CMP (RCMP).
Results: Overall, the age-standardized prevalence of DCMP was 30.4 per 100,000 persons in 2006 and 36.9 in 2014. This represented an increase from 17.9 to 23.3 in men and from 12.4 to 13.5 in women. Overall, the age-standardized prevalence of HCMP was 13.0 per 100,000 persons in 2006 and 25.9 in 2014. This represented an increase from 7.78 to 16.5 in men and from 5.26 to 9.37 in women. Overall, the age-standardized prevalence of RCMP was 0.14 per 100,000 persons in 2006 and 0.39 in 2011. This represented an increase from 0.08 to 0.20 in men and from 0.05 to 0.18 in women. In particular, the age-standardized prevalence of DCMP and HCMP showed a greater increase in prevalence in patients aged 65 years or older compared with groups aged 20-44 years and 45-64 years for men and women.
Conclusions: The overall age-standardized prevalence of DCMP and HCMP increased between 2006 and 2014, especially in individuals older than 65 years. These changes should be considered in future designs of cardiovascular healthcare services in countries with a rapidly aging population.
