Zuppiroli, and A. Dolara Definition Today hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HeM) can be easily diagnosed from birth to the 8th decade by two-dimensional echocardiography (2D-echo). Abnormal wall thickness of the left and right ventricle can be detected and measured in vivo. A reliable diagnosis of both typical (Fig. 1) and atypical (Fig. 2) patterns of HeM can be made [1], although some pitfalls may be encountered. In the majority of the patients with HeM, hypertrophy is present in the interventricular septum and the anterolateral wall of the left ventricle (LV).

Spirito Introduction Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is a primary cardiac disease characterized by increased left ventricular wall thickness and normal or decreased cavity dimension [1, 2]. Abnormalities of left ventricular function are common in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and involve either diastole, systole, or both. The discussion will be focused on the pathophysiologic mechanisms and clinical implications of the diastolic and systolic abnormalities in this disease.
