Statement of Need

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is a primary myocardial disorder that involves unexplained left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy, often caused by pathogenic variants in sarcomere genes. Current management strategies focus on symptom control, genetic and familial screening, and prevention of sudden cardiac death in those at high risk, with beta-blockers and non-dihydropyridine calcium channel blockers being the mainstays of treatment. However, new agents with novel mechanisms of action are in development that have demonstrated substantial health status improvement in patients with symptomatic HCM.

The third and final installment of this CMEO Snack series on HCM will examine trial results of emerging treatments targeting cardiac myosin to address the underlying molecular defect of HCM.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this CE activity, participants should be able to:

  • Assess trial results of emerging HCM disease-specific treatments targeting cardiac myosin to address the underlying molecular defect of HCM.

Financial Support

Supported by an educational grant from Bristol Myers Squibb

Target Audience

Cardiologists, interventional cardiologists, electrophysiologists, internists, primary care clinicians, PAs, nurse practitioners, nurses, and pharmacists
