The medical management of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is reviewed. Four cases of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy are presented, and serve to describe the currently available invasive treatment modalities, i.e. septal myectomy, dual chamber pacing, cardioverter defibrillator implantation and heart transplantation. These different invasive treatments all seem to be symptomatically effective in carefully selected patients, but studies of prognostic effects are not available. Finally, new experimental procedures are presented.
