This talk focuses on the diagnosis, risk stratification and management of patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, a common hereditary cardiac condition.

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, usually obstructive, causes symptomatic limitations to a significant number of patients and can be associated with risk of complications.

There are lifelong issues related to the diagnosis that need to be managed at multiple levels. New drugs generate hope for a paradigm shift in the management of this condition.

Learning objectives
  • Precise diagnosis of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
  • Appropriate use of genetic testing.
  • Risk stratification.
  • Medical and invasive management.
  • New developments (presented at the ESC Congress 2020).
