Genetics of HOCM. HOCM is an autosomal dominant trait with variable expressivity [8].

[22], using cultured smooth muscle cells obtained from rat renal artery, HOCM and LOCM but not IOCM were found to lower NO levels.
HOCM is incurable, but new devices and surgical procedures can help preserve quality and length of life.
"That's the same thing in a way that happens with HOCM: You get hypertrophy of the myocardium that we believe will show up with an elevated BNP, even when the patients are clinically asymptomatic or normal on physical exam," he said in an interview.
The cost debate has spilled over into the radiology community to the point where even hospitals with a total conversion to LOCM are now considering a more judicious balance in the use of HOCM and LOCM.

Our patient is the 1st reported case of DKA-induced TC in a patient with known HOCM in the United States.
The prevalence of Hypertrophic Obstructive Cardiomyopathy (HOCM), Peripartum Cardiomyopathy (PPCM) and Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) was found to be 2.17% each.
However, gradient can also arise as a result of narrowing of LVOT or systolic anterior motion (SAM) of mitral valve as happens in HOCM. We present a patient who was planned to undergo aortic valve replacement surgery for severe AS, but was discovered to be suffering from HOCM producing AS like symptoms and a structurally normal aortic valve during perioperative transesophageal echo (TOE).
This class of CM was termed high-osmolar CM (HOCM) and was found to be associated with a considerable riskfor CIAKI [1, 32, 33].
