This program will focus on the diagnosis of hypertrophic and restrictive cardiomyopathies (e.g. HCM, sarcoidosis, infiltrative diseases including iron overload and amyloidosis, mitochondrial disorders) based on imaging and modern genetics and the management of these conditions including novel therapeutics, catheter and surgical based interventions including cardiac replacement therapy. Lectures will be given by internationally recognized experts who will address the current clinical practice, use of standard and emerging treatments, and evolution of the field.

Target Audience

This activity is designed for both adult and pediatric cardiologists, interventional cardiologists, pediatricians, internists, cardiac nurses, physician assistants, physical therapists, and other medical professionals involved in the evaluation, diagnosis and/or management of patients with hypertrophic and restrictive cardiomyopathy.

Learning Objectives

  • Demonstrate an understanding of how to identify the phenotype of HCM and phenocopies that mimic HCM
  • Delineate methods to risk stratify patients with HCM for SCD and role of AICD for primary prevention
  • Discuss and understand the surgical and interventional approaches to hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy (HOCM)
  • Identify benefits of cardiac transplantation in HCM and RCM and recognize the limitations of LVAD therapy in this population
  • Delineate the mechanisms of specific disease modifying therapies for specific restrictive cardiomyopathies and their appropriate use
  • Outline emerging risk factors for SCD in HCM
  • Describe the clinical utility and interpretation of genetic testing for patients with HCM and RCM
