Cardiomyopathy can be an inherited disease—hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is the most common inherited form, with an estimated prevalence of 1 in 500 in the general population.
HCM is the leading cause of sudden non-traumatic death in young adults and competitive athletes in the United States.
Cardiomyopathy testing is valuable for practitioners, as signs and symptoms may not be detected through standard diagnostic or screening tests. The information gained through cardiomyopathy testing can help prevent cardiac arrest and other manifestations of these disorders.
