Idiopathic Hypertrophic Subaortic Stenosis Underlying Cause
Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is an inherited illness. The wall of the left ventricle and mitral valve become thickened and enlarged. This can interfere with the normal blood flow through the heart, resulting in weakness of the heart and leading to congestive heart failure.
