Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy Program
Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy Condition
Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is an inherited disease of your heart muscle, where the muscle wall of your heart becomes thickened. HCM is a genetic condition caused by a change or mutation in one or more genes and is passed on through families. Each child of someone with HCM has a 50 percent chance of inheriting the condition.
What Are the Symptoms of HCM?
- Shortness of Breath
- Chest Pain
- Fast Heartbeat
- Sudden Cardiac Death
If you have symptoms or a family history of HCM, you may need an echocardiograph (ECG). Echocardiographs use ultrasound technology to look at the heart as it beats. Talk to your doctor about whether an echocardiograph is the right choice for you and your family.
