About this book


This extensively updated edition provides a comprehensive review of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, the most common genetic disorder of the heart characterized by dysfunctional contractility at the sarcomere level. The disease produces abnormal and oftentimes focal hypertrophy on a macroscopic level that further impairs cardiac performance and may lead to life-threatening arrhythmias. This edition provides a practical approach, establishing evidence-based best practice for all scenarios.

Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy provides readers with key points and critical clinical pearls to assist them in managing patients. New chapters have been included on managing hypertension, sleep apnea, coronary artery disease, structural and congenital disease, nutrition and pharmacotherapies. All aspects of treatment are covered – medications, pacemakers and defibrillators, and invasive septal reduction therapy (both surgical myectomy and alcohol septal ablation) – in addition to genetics, family screening, lifestyle concerns, and athletic screening. The practical approach has been reinforced with an expanded emphasis on creating a Center of Excellence, how to facilitate the multi-disciplinary approach, and on case-based reviews and discussions, with each chapter ending with a post-test.

This book is an essential text for cardiology professionals from trainee to board-certified physician, and includes important information for interventional cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, cardiac imagers, critical care physicians, sports medicine physicians, genetic counsellors, and electrophysiologists.
