Familial hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is the most common inherited cardiac disease resulting from mutations in genes encoding sarcomeric proteins. HCM mutations confer an increased risk for ventricular arrhythmias leading to sudden cardiac death at any age, although HCM is best known as a cause of sudden cardiac death in young athletes. However, the mechanisms that cause ventricular arrhythmias in young people with near normal cardiac structure are poorly understood.
