Abstract

As explored throughout this JACC Focus Seminar series, participation in regular exercise offers significant positive benefits for cardiovascular health. However, patients with underlying inherited cardiovascular diseases, such as hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, have historically been restricted from sports participation because of the risk of sudden cardiac death. Over the last decade, new data has challenged this restrictive approach. Today, the notion of individualized, patient-centered shared decision-making is being progressively adopted to guide patients with an inherited cardiovascular disease to decide if they can undertake regular exercise, or even if they can participate in competitive sports. Here in this part 3 of a 4-part seminar series, we focus on these concepts and recent data with respect to exercise and the heart in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and other inherited cardiovascular diseases, with particular emphasis on participation in recreational and competitive sports for these individuals.
