Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy Center and Research Institute
National HCM Guidelines
The 2020 (and current) American College of Cardiology / American Heart Association Guideline for the management of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy guides practices for this disease. These extensive and detailed recommendations were formulated for cardiovascular communities in the HCM Center in collaboration with other U.S. experts and Carey Kimmelstiel, MD.
Direct patient education
A strength of the HCM Center is the relationships we create and build with each and every patient. You will receive the most up-to-date information about this disease in the popular book written for patients, “A Guide To Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy." For Patients, Their Families and Interested Physicians”, written by Dr. Barry Maron with Lisa Salberg, Founder of the patient advocacy Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy Association (HCMA). This is particularly important since there remains so much misunderstanding about HCM in the community and a new diagnosis can be particularly intimidating.
