Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is when the left ventricle is hypertrophied in the absence of another cardiac or systemic disease that could produce a similar magnitude of hypertrophy. HCM is the most common genetic heart disease with vast clinical and phenotypic heterogeneity with a worldwide prevalence of 1:200. It is the most common cause of sudden death in the young, and many patients are free of clinically significant features until triggered by a cardiac event. Due to under-recognition of disease and under-referral for specialized HCM treatment, women and underserved minorities have been disproportionately affected.
The first installment in this CME Outfitters Snack series on HCM focuses on recognizing the array of presenting symptoms of HCM in order to facilitate an accurate diagnosis and referral, including the utilization of guideline recommendations for diagnostic assessment and risk stratification.
At the end of this CE activity, participants should be able to:
- Evaluate appropriate patients for HCM using evidence-based screening and diagnostic strategies.
