Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM) Disease Understanding

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is a common genetically inherited heart disease and represents an important cause of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality in patients of all ages. HCM is characterized by left ventricular hypertrophy unexplained by secondary causes and a nondilated left ventricle with preserved or increased ejection fraction. It is commonly asymmetrical, with the most severe hypertrophy involving the basal interventricular septum.


Although the onset of symptoms can occur at any age, typically, symptoms begin between the ages of 20 and 40. Symptoms vary but result from left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) obstruction, diastolic dysfunction, myocardial ischemia, and supraventricular and ventricular arrhythmias. The histological features of HCM include myocyte hypertrophy and disarray, as well as interstitial fibrosis. Hypertrophy is also frequently associated with left ventricular diastolic dysfunction. In the majority of patients, HCM has a relatively benign course. However, HCM is also an important cause of sudden cardiac death, particularly in adolescents and young adults.


Mutations in over a dozen genes encoding sarcomere-associated proteins cause HCM. MYH7 and MYBPC3, encoding the β-myosin heavy chain and myosin-binding protein C, respectively, are the two most common genes involved, together accounting for ~50% of the HCM families. The causal genes remain to be identified in many HCM patients. Mutations in genes responsible for storage diseases also cause a phenotype resembling HCM (genocopy or phenocopy).


The diagnosis of HCM is based predominantly on echocardiographic variables, including dynamic LVOTO, LVH, distribution of increased muscle thickness, mechanism and severity of MR, and degree of diastolic dysfunction. Current indications for surgical intervention include symptomatic patients refractory to medical therapy who can tolerate the risk of surgery and patients with marked outflow gradients, even if asymptomatic. The routine applications of genetic testing and preclinical identification of family members represent an important advance. The genetic discoveries have enhanced understanding of the molecular pathogenesis of HCM and have stimulated efforts designed to identify new therapeutic agents.
