Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy with Outflow Tract Obstruction

Cardiomyopathy is a problem with your heart muscle. It can affect people of all ages. The heart muscle becomes bigger, thickened, or stiff. This illness makes it harder for your heart to pump blood. It becomes harder for your heart to carry blood to the rest of your body. This illness can lead to heart failure. There are many kinds of cardiomyopathy: The heart becomes weak and large. It cannot pump enough blood. This is dilated cardiomyopathy. This is the most common type of cardiomyopathy. The heart becomes thick. This makes it harder for blood to leave the heart. This is hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. It is a common cause of sudden cardiac death. The arteries that give the heart blood become narrow. The heart becomes enlarged and weak. This is ischemic cardiomyopathy. The heart muscle becomes stiff. Abnormal heart tissue replaces normal heart tissue. This reduces blood flow in the heart. This is restrictive cardiomyopathy. It is most common in older adults. The heart becomes weak during pregnancy or in the first 5 months after birth. This is peripartum cardiomyopathy. Sudden weakening of the heart caused by physical or emotion stress. This is stress-induced cardiomyopathy. Cardiomyopathy may go away on its own, or may not need treatment. Cardiomyopathy may be treated with drugs or surgery. Sometimes, pacemakers and implantable cardioverter-defibrillators are used to treat this illness. Other times, a heart transplant is needed.
