If you’re diagnosed with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, your doctor will work with you on a treatment plan tailored to your needs. It may include lifestyle changes to improve your health such as quitting smoking, avoiding high-intensity sports and limiting salt, alcohol and caffeine.
Your doctor may also prescribe medications, such as beta blockers, antibiotics, and diuretics.
Surgical treatment options include:
- Alcohol septal ablation – a minimally invasive procedure that thins the muscle tissue in part of your heart.
- Implantable cardioverter defibrillator
- Septal myectomy – a surgery where doctors remove part of your heart muscle wall.
