Abstract

The relationship between cardiac shape and the age of patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) has been established, and echocardiography has been accepted as the best method to quantitate ventricular cavity geometry. Recently, real-time three-dimensional volumetric data have demonstrated that children and young, middle-aged, and elderly patients with HCM have different morphologic and prognostic characteristics. This review discusses the importance of phenotypic expression and describes secondary factors that may affect ventricular cavity geometry during the progression of HCM.
