Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy in the elderly

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is a heart disease with asymmetric myocardium, uneven hypertrophy and smaller ventricular cavity. Typically, ventricular septal hypertrophy is much more obvious than free wall, causing left ventricular outflow tract stenosis, so it is also called primary hypertrophic subvalvular aortic stenosis (IHSS). The basic abnormal changes are left ventricular diastolic dysfunction and blocked blood filling. The incidence of HCM is mainly middle-aged and young people, and there are more familial diseases. However, in recent years, the incidence of elderly people has gradually increased. Among a group of 44 patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy in China, 36.3% were older than 60 years old.
