In this programme 'Updates in HCM Management: An Expert Interpretation of the ESC Cardiomyopathy Guidelines 2023', Prof Elena Arbelo (University of Barcelona, ES) and Prof Juan Pablo Kaski (University College London, UK), offer comprehensive insights into the updated guidelines. They delve into the latest developments in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), provide treatment recommendations for obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (oHCM), and discuss how these new guidelines impact the current approach to managing these conditions.


This course is tailored to assist healthcare practitioners in comprehending the most recent guideline recommendations and ensuring their effective implementation. The authors explore how medical practices can adapt to incorporate new therapeutic agents for oHCM and clarify the responsibilities associated with prescribing these therapies.
