Some people with HCM are at increased risk for developing atrial fibrillation, heart failure, suffering from stroke and even sudden cardiac death (SCD). Patients who suffer from arrhythmias associated with HCM may require implantable cardioverter-defibrillator devices to reduce their risk of SCD. Join Drs. Maron, Gleva, and Udelson as they discuss risk stratification strategies, device selection, and the role of shared decision-making in the prevention of SCD.
