Hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy (HOCM) is an autosomal, dominant inherited disease of the myocardium which leads slowly to increasing subvalvular, septal and left ventricular hypertrophy and deterioration of systolic and diastolic left ventricular compliance. Difficult molecular-genetic investigations localized genetic defects on different chromosomes. The disease is pathological-anatomically characterized by asymmetric subvalvular (aortic) septal hypertrophy and left ventricular… CONTINUE READING
