yes it can be deadly, hypertrphy cause a disminution in the perfussion of cardiomyocites (heart cells) cause there's more tissue and the same blood vessels, and this could cause ischemia.- the athletes hypertophy isn't the most common type, hypertension and aortic stenosis are, and those are more serious.- but if the patient is caught on time,and the treatment works the life prognosis is good.- hope he/she gets better.- :)
