Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy

It might be I have this, so I am seeing a new doctor at UCH. I have a slightly thickened cardiac septum (the wall between the left right ventricle) This may have provided the cause of the electrical currents that resulted in my Ventricular Fibrillation, nearly resulting in SCD (Sudden Cardiac Death)

  1. Thanks for asking, No it can't be fixed, but it is a minor case that apart from providing a possible seat for arrythmia it does not cause any problems. It has been caught early and I think drugs will prevent it getting worse. I have the defibrillator fitted now so I am OK on the arrythmia front.
