[Familial hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy as a cause of sudden death].

Abstract

The causes of sudden deaths from cardiomyopathy are not among the most frequent, but their importance has gradually increased especially at the young age. Their occurrence in the material of Olomouc wards represent 1.65% of all sudden deaths. Etiopathogenesis, early diagnosis of a serious affection in the living patient and possible genetic factors represent the most important problems. The findings and the related problems have been demonstrated on the cases of two brothers at the age of 28 and 26 years in hypertrophic obstruction cardiomyopathy.
