In today’s life, lifestyle disorders are increasing at a very fast rate. And the most common lifestyle disorders are diabetes and cardiac disorders. Heart health should be a prime thing to maintain when someone is coming to the age group of 50s because the risk is more at this age. So we should have a healthy diet and follow a healthy lifestyle. But in today’s time, youth are too much in the sedentary lifestyle. Due to bad diet habits and bad lifestyle, youngsters are facing a lot of health problems. In today’s article, we are going to put a limelight on one of the cardiac disorders named hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy and its management in detail.


Hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy (HOCM) is a disease in which muscles of the heart become thick and hypertrophied. HOCM is referred to as hypertrophic subaortic stenosis and is a significant cause of sudden cardiac death in young people. In this condition, the thickened muscles of the heart can make it difficult to pump out the blood. This is a complex type of heart disorder that affects the heart muscles and causes thickening of the heart muscles especially the ventricles of the heart, left ventricles stiffness, mitral valve changes and cellular changes. This condition occurs commonly at the septum. The thickened septum results in the heart to less pump out the blood and may also cause electrical conduction problems.

Hypertrophic Obstructive Cardiomyopathy


This disease is most commonly inherited from parents to their offspring in an autosomal dominant pattern. Abnormality in a gene that codes the characteristics for the heart muscles is the cause of this disease. The main pumping chamber that is ventricles may become stiff and hard. Other possible causes are:

  • High blood pressure
  • Aging
  • Excessive sympathetic stimulation due to excess catecholamine secretion
  • Abnormal contractile function of the myofibrils
  • Due to involvement of other diseases such as fabry disease, friedreich’s ataxia
  • Certain medications such as tacrolimus
