Published on: 

Anjali Tiku Owens, MD, examines the unmet needs in treating obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (oHCM) and explores how novel Cardiac Myosin inhibitors (CMIs) address the root cause of the condition.

  1. The treatment of obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (oHCM) has a high level of unmet needs, can you discuss these with us?
  • How do novel cardiac myosin inhibitors (CMIs) target the underlying cause of oHCM?

2. What has the impact of CMI’s been on the management of oHCM?

  • Complements (first line) standard of care
  • Addresses the root cause of oHCM
  • Narrowing the substantial gap between effective medical therapy and the more definitive invasive treatments like alcohol septal ablation and surgical myectomy.
