Care and Treatment of Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

Treatments

Stanford cardiologists are world leaders in the development of implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) devices. Our cardiac surgeons are pioneers in the development of the myectomy/myotomy.

Many patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathynever need treatment. However, it is imperative for all patients to be monitored by a cardiologist. A cardiologist will work with the patient to determine an individualized plan for monitoring, medical therapy, intervention and follow-up.

The patient will communicate with the healthcare provider to determine treatment options based on factors such as:

  • Age
  • Overall health
  • Medical history
  • Extent of the disease
  • Tolerance for specific medications, procedures, or therapies
  • Expectations for the course of the disease

Learn more about the following treatment options for hypertrophic cardiomyopathy:

Alcohol septal ablation

A procedure in which ethanol (alcohol) is injected into an artery to shrink the thickened heart muscle that obstructs the outflow of blood from the heart.

Implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD)

A surgically implanted medical device that detects irregular heart rhythms and works to set the heart back into a normal rhythm.

Medications

Medications are used to reduce the build of pressure in the heart and help regulate your heartbeat.

Myectomy/myotomy 

A surgical treatment option that removes a portion of the enlarged heart wall.

Pacemaker

A surgically implanted medical device that monitors heart rhythm.
