Cause of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy
What is the cause of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy?
It Must have a family history of known cases of heart disease and sudden cardiac death. The condition is hereditary and is caused by mutation (error) in one or more genes. Gene's defect leads in turn to the muscle cells of the heart grows too much.
The changes in the heart can vary from person to person. Many small changes and have no complaints. Typically, the wall of the left ventricle (ventricle), which is thickened (hypertrophic). At 20-30% will be the end of the left ventricle cramped, making it difficult for the heart to pump blood out into the wide circulation. Furthermore, anterior chamber (atria) may eventually be enlarged.
The changes in heart muscles and the atria predisposing to arrhythmias in the heart. In some cases, these arrhythmias may be severe and lead to cardiac arrest.
