Feline hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is the most common acquired heart disease seen in felines. Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is a term used when there is no known cause, however secondary, is brought about by other conditions such as high blood pressure, hyperthyroidism etc. Cats with secondary hypertrophic cardiomyopathy tend to be older than cats affected by HCM, the cardiac alterations as excessive thickening of the left ventricular wall, papillary muscles and septum detected by echocardiographic examination and other clinical symptoms tend to have resolution after appropriated therapy of hyperthyroidism and systemic hypertension.

Abstract

Feline hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is the most common acquired heart disease seen in felines. Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is a term used when there is no known cause, however secondary, is brought about by other conditions such as high blood pressure, hyperthyroidism etc. Cats with secondary hypertrophic cardiomyopathy tend to be older than cats affected by HCM, the cardiac alterations as excessive thickening of the left ventricular wall, papillary muscles and septum detected by echocardiographic examination and other clinical symptoms tend to have resolution after appropriated therapy of hyperthyroidism and systemic hypertension.
