Hypertrophic subaortic stenosis

Hypertrophic subaortic stenosis: Introduction

Hypertrophic subaortic stenosis: A heart condition involving thickening of parts of the heart (usually the muscle wall separating the heart chambers) which reduces the size of the heart chambers (specifically the left ventricle). This abnormally thick heart muscle restricts the outflow of blood from the left heart ventricle and results in heart muscle disease. The condition is considered to be uncommon but not rare with as many as 1 in 500 people affected. The condition is usually caused by a genetic defect and the severity of the condition is variable. More detailed information about the symptoms, causes, and treatments of Hypertrophic subaortic stenosis is available below.
