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.- :)

My husband has Hypertrophic Cardiomyopothy. He has had 2 incidents where the veins on his temple/forehead bulge and throb causing him discomfort. He is 45 yrs old and just had a re-check after the first year of knowing that he has HC. He had this 2nd episode after the Doctor appt. Naturally. It seems that both times this has happened it was very hot out. Could this be from dehydration or could it be related to the HC?
