Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is a rare, congenital heart disease in which the muscles in the walls of the left ventricle are thickened and prevent your heart from beating correctly.

The left ventricle is the chamber of your heart that pumps blood out into your body. When the walls are thickened, blood is not able to effectively leave the heart. If the condition causes issues with your heart valves, blood also flows backward into the left atrium and pools in the bottom of that chamber. Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy can lead to heart failure and increased risk of stroke, heart attack and arrhythmias, which cause sudden death in some cases.

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy may not show any symptoms, but can be detected during a routine exam. High blood pressure and a heart murmur, especially in young people, are signs of the condition. Other symptoms include chest pain, shortness of breath, dizziness and fainting. Many treatments are available to manage hypertrophic cardiomyopathy depending on the severity of your condition.

Indiana University Health Heart & Vascular physicians offer a full range of leading edge treatment options for hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, from medications to pacemakers. Your treatment is personalized to fit your needs, and we monitor your condition to ensure your heart function improves. In partnership with cardiologists at Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health, our physicians provide seamless care for hypertrophic cardiomyopathy as you age.

Our physicians are nationwide leaders in cardiovascular care. The first heart transplant at a private hospital was performed at Indiana University Health, and our physicians invented the implantable cardioverter to regulate heartbeat. Our years of experience allow us to offer high quality, comprehensive care to more patients than any other health system in Indiana. We focus on improving your heart health through advanced treatment options and care that is personalized to fit your lifestyle.
