HCM end stage
My relative is already on 80mg of Lasix, ACE inhibitor, and a calcium channel blocker.  Is there anything else that can be taken to help with an increase in RV pressures (increase of 20 points in 8 months)

Thanks!

Does your relative have an obstruction? Also, if he has HCM, family members should have been evaluated for the disease as well as this can be genetic in nature. Sometimes a pacemaker can help to make a person with HCM feel better.

Katrina, have the family been evaluated for HCM? What I was asking you in my above question was whether or not she had an obstruction (HOCM)? Some people do and need a myectomy to help them feel better. What makes you think she in end stage HCM? What are her symptoms like? Have you contacted the Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy Association? They have a world of info on the disease and maedical advances. Just do a search on the computer and their website will come up. Lisa is the founder of the Association.

I agree with grendslori, I would contact the HCMA. Does your friend see a specialist in HCM ?
