Abstract
Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is marked by profound phenotypic and genotypic heterogeneity. Systolic anterior motion (SAM) of the anterior mitral leaflet is a classically described feature of HCM but its genetic predilection is unknown. Our study cohort consisted of 213 (74 male, mean age 51

INTRODUCTION Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is the most common inherited cardiac condition and the most common cause of sudden cardiac death (SCD) in patients below the age of 35. Genetic testing is a vital part of HCM diagnostics, yet correlation with clinical phenotypes remains complex. Identifying clinical predictors of informative genetic testing may prevent unnecessary investigations and improve cost-effectiveness of services. This article reviews the current literature pertinent to iden...
