Dilated cardiomyopathy results from dilated ventricles in the heart. Damage to the heart will cause the walls to thin and stretch. This makes the muscle much weaker, and eventually, the body will not be able to keep up high enough blood pressure for survival. I built three different hearts in Minecraft showing the progression of this disease. The first four images are the completed product, and the rest below that are the progress of me building it.

  1. The Minecraft building of cardiomyopathy shows the various stages of how the heart is regulated through the muscular system. Along with the various structures and functions of the heart. The dilated ventricles in the heart are damaged and become thin. The thinning of the ventricle walls does not allow for enough pressure to pump to the pulmonary artery and then out to the rest of the body. This lowers the blood pressure of the individual causing prolonged issues and even death if left untreated.
