Any Treatments for Cardiac Sarcoidosis?

Q:
Any treatments for cardiac sarcoidosis?

A:
Generally, cardiac sarcoidosis does not require treatments. When needed, treatments for cardiac sarcoidosis focus on reducing inflammation in the body and managing the heart problems caused by the granulomas.

The disease cannot be cured, but its effects can often be successfully managed. Treatments for cardiac sarcoidosis include:

  • Corticosteroids: These drugs suppress the immune system to reduce inflammation.
  • Other immunosuppressive drugs: These drugs can include methotrexate and cyclophosphamide.
  • Anti-arrhythmic drugs: These drugs reduce the occurrence or severity of arrhythmias
  • Catheter ablation and ICD (Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator): They can deliver an electrical shock in order to normalize heartbeats.
