Updates in HCM Management: An Expert Interpretation of the ESC Cardiomyopathy Guidelines 2023
Published: 31 August 2023
This programme features the chairpersons responsible for the most recent ESC Guidelines on Cardiomyopathy, which were presented at ESC 2023 in Amsterdam.
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 session is tailored to assist healthcare practitioners in comprehending the most recent guidelines 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.
This programme holds particular educational value for Cardiologists, Heart Failure Specialists, Electrophysiologists, and Cardiac Surgeons. Furthermore, it will be of interest to any HCPs specialising in HCM treatment or those who may play a role within the broader care team by identifying and referring patients for specialist assessments on a global scale.
- Recall guideline updates relevant to the use of disease modifying agents in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy
- Identify patients who, according to guidelines, may benefit from emerging disease modifying therapies prior to septal ablation therapy or being managed by symptom control alone
- Discuss long-term management strategies for patients receiving myosin inhibitor therapy
- Heart Failure Specialists
- Cardiac Surgeons
- HCPs who specialise in treating HCM
