Importance Predictors of lethal arrhythmic events (LAEs) after a pediatric diagnosis of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) are unresolved. Existing algorithms for risk stratification are limited to patients older than 16 years because of a lack of data on younger individuals. Objective To describe the long-term outcome of pediatric-onset HCM and identify age-specific arrhythmic risk factors. Design, Setting, and Participants This study assessed patients with pediatric-onset hypertrophic… CONTINUE READING
