ABSTRACT
The article presents the authors' perspective on a study concerning the identification of myofilament mutations and its role in the diagnosis and management of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), which is published within the issue. They remark that the observation of the study should be considered preliminary until the mutation in the low-risk group are also identified. They contend that the genetic-based risk stratification does not alter the therapeutic implications for the management of HCM.
