Information and advice for people affected by hypertrophic cardiomyopathy

For the majority of affected individuals, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is a condition which will not limit the quality or duration of life. A minority of people, however, experience significant symptoms and are at risk of sudden death. Evaluation by a cardiologist is recommended to confirm the diagnosis and to assess the outlook and, particularly, the risk of complications.

The hypertrophic cardiomyopathy booklet is available for anyone interested in learning more about the condition. To read it click on the booklet image or the link below or email us for a free copy.  The booklet has been produced in consultation with doctors, other medical staff and those with the condition. It seeks to answer many of the questions and concerns of patients and their relatives.

Medical terms which describe the condition, and which might be encountered in conversations with doctors, are included and explained in the text. In addition, words in italics are explained in a glossary at bottom of the page. The Cardiomyopathy Association encourages comments to improve the information it supplies.
