  • Medicine to slow growth of septum

    Hi,
    Has anyone heard of any studies where they used medicine to slow the growth of the hcm septum and possibly even reverse the thickening? I think it is supposed to be Verapamil.

    Nothing will reverse HCM - in those with LVH due to hypertention the reduction of hypertention may result in regression of hypertrophy - but that is not HCM.

      Reversion

      My mom has been on a betablocker for fifty years and I'm told that her hypertrophy has gone down, but it has not helped her in any measurable way and still takes amiodarone to prevent afib.
