idiopathic hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (iˈ•dē•ō•paˑ•thik hīˈ•per•trōˑ•fik karˈ•dē•ō•mī•ˑ•p•thē),

 A condition of the cardiac muscle in which the septum between the two ventricles is extraordinarily thick, so that the heart muscle does not relax completely during diastole. This condition often blocks the flow of blood from the heart, resulting in shortness of breath, palpitations, chest pain, fainting, and sudden death.

Cardiomyopathy refers to diseases of the heart muscle. These diseases have a variety of causes, symptoms, and treatments.  Idiopathic means that the cardiomyopathy occurs with no discernible cause.

 

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is very common and can affect people of any age. About 1 out of every 500 people has this type of cardiomyopathy. It affects men and women equally. Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is the most common cause of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) in young people, including young athletes.
