From ACC 2024: Understanding Trends in Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy-Related ED Visits, with Ahmad Masri, MD, MS

Insights from an analysis of the Nationwide Emergency Department Sample (NEDS) from 2006 through 2019 provides a snapshot of trends in emergency department visits among patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) in the US.

Presented at the American College of Cardiology 2024 (ACC.24) Annual Scientific Session, results of the study serve as a testament to the growing recognition of HCM, but also the need for a greater emphasis on optimal management, with data showing the number of HCM-related emergency department visits increased throughout the study period, but the rate of those presenting with cardiac arrest remained stable.
