Echocardiography in hypertensive cardiomyopathy

Hypertensive cardiomyopathy defines all structural, morphological and functional cardiac effects caused by direct/indirect chronic high blood pressure. Are included: left ventricular hypertrophy, coronary artery disease, cardiac arrhythmias (atrial fibrillation, ventricular extrasystoles, ventricular tachycardia) and...

Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy – Interventional Treatment

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is a common familial autosomal dominant heart condition, with a heterogeneous phenotypic expression, characterized by left ventricular hypertrophy in the absence of associated conditions that could explain it (high blood pressure, aortic...

Dilated Cardiomyopathy

Dilated cardiomyopathy is a serious condition in which the heart muscle is weakened and no longer has the strength to pump blood throughout the body. Weakened heart cannot pump much blood, so that more...

Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is a genetic defect where the myocardium (heart muscle) thickens abnormally. Thickened myocardium can affect the heart’s electrical system, putting the patient’s life in danger through abnormal heart beats (arrhythmias) and rarely,...
