The yield of risk stratification for sudden cardiac death in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy myosin-binding protein C gene mutation carriers: focus on predictive screening.

Abstract

AIMS We investigated the presence of a clinical diagnosis of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) and of risk factors for sudden cardiac death (SCD) at the first cardiological evaluation after predictive genetic testing in asymptomatic carriers of an MYBPC3 gene mutation. METHODS AND RESULTS Two hundred and thirty-five mutation carriers were cardiologically… (More)
