Abstract

Previous studies revealed that an abnormal blood pressure response (ABPR) during exercise was common in young hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) patients and was associated with a family history of premature sudden cardiac death (SCD). This study was performed prospectively to assess the prognostic significance of blood pressure response during exercise in young patients with HCM.
