Statement of Need

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is the most common monogenic cardiac disease, with a highly variable phenotypic expression that ranges from no symptoms to drug-refractory heart failure. HCM is a lifelong condition that can worsen over time and is characterized by ventricular hypertrophy that cannot be explained by another cardiac or systemic disease. Patients may go years without a diagnosis despite being symptomatic, putting them at increased risk for atrial fibrillation, stroke, heart failure, and sudden cardiac death.

To provide the best quality of care and achieve optimal outcomes, it is critical for clinicians to properly screen appropriate patients and determine the etiology of symptoms, which are often non-specific. Genetic testing can help determine if the hypertrophy is associated with mutations in one of several sarcomeric genes which encode components of the contractile apparatus of the heart.

In this CME Outfitters OnDemand symposium from Heart Rhythm 2022, three experts in HCM explore the latest strategies and updates in HCM diagnosis and management, including progress with disease-specific treatments that target cardiac myosin.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this CE activity, participants should be able to:

  • Apply current, evidence-based diagnostic and treatment strategies to the care of patients with HCM.
  • Assess the chemomechanical cycle of cardiac myosin in HCM and the impact of myosin inhibition on disease factors.
  • Evaluate study results of disease-specific treatments targeting cardiac myosin in HCM.

Financial Support

Supported by an educational grant from Bristol Myers Squibb.

Target Audience

Physicians, PAs, nurse practitioners, nurses, and pharmacists specializing in cardiology and electrophysiology
