Cardiomyopathy: Some patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy may have a mild form and live a normal lifespan. Some patients may have more severe forms that are progressive necessitating surgery, or resulting in arrythmias, fainting, heart failire or even evolving into a dilated cardiomyopathy requiring heart transplant in the most severe cases. Close follow up with a doctor is important with this condition.

Yes: In some cases this may be an option, but the details should be discussed with one's personal doctor.
