Sequelae include atrial fibrillation, palpitations, syncope, mural thrombi (which may embolize and result in cerebrovascular accidents), heart failure, ventricular arrhythmias (including nonsustained ventricular tachycardia and ventricular fibrillation), and sudden death.
Longitudinal left ventricular strain in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy: correlation with nonsustained ventricular tachycardia.
Clinically determinable risk factors for sudden cardiac death in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy are a family history of sudden death related to the disease, nonsustained ventricular tachycardia on an ambulatory electrocardiogram, a history of unexplained syncope, a fall in blood pressure with exercise, and massive hypertrophy of the left ventricle (wall thickness [greater than or equal to] 30 mm).
