Treatment depends on the severity of the symptoms, condition complications, patient age and overall health. Treatment options include:
- Symptom control using medications such as anti-arrhythmics, blood thinners, beta-blockers, calcium channel blockers
- Pacemaker or defibrillator
- Alcohol septal ablation
Some patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy have few symptoms and don’t require extensive treatment, but it is important to have a thorough evaluation and ongoing care by a fully qualified cardiologist.
