Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy is a medical condition associated with thickening of the heart muscle, mostly the septum that separates the ventricles. This results in the stiffening of the heart walls and abnormal aortic and mitral valve functioning, which ultimately results in reduced blood flow out of the heart. Symptoms are:
• Chest pain
• Shortness of breath
• Sudden death
HOW IS HYPERTROPHIC CARDIOMYOPATHY DIAGNOSED?
In addition to a physical examination a cardiologist would recommend any echocardiogram or ECG to check and confirm the functioning of the heart. Medical and family history and the symptoms experienced by the patient would be discussed.
HOW IS HYPERTROPHIC CARDIOMYOPATHY TREATED?
Medications are prescribed to patients to relieve the symptoms of this disorder and prevent further complications. Medicines to relax the muscles of the heart and reduce the heart rate are recommended. A septal myectomy in which a part of the thickened wall is removed is performed when medications do not work.
DID YOU KNOW?
There is a high risk of death in such cases because of ICD or if the patient has hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. In such cases, the abnormal heart rhythms lead to failure of the heart.
