Dear friend, welcome to HCM !

The report is not that worrisome at all.
It shows left lower heart chamber little thicker -common in hypertensives.
LVDD- meaning little stiffening of the muscle while filling in.
-- I think there is some typo !

does he have a coronary artery disease (CAD)?
the reported echo findings are common in almost all elderly ( esp. with BP)

Take care and please keep me informed of your progress.
Good Luck !
