Dear Colleagues,

It is a pleasure to announce the IV International Workshop on Cardiomyopathies (Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy) which will be held in A Coruña, on 21-22 September, 2023.

Twenty years ago, three Scientific Meetings focused on Cardiomyopathies were held in A Coruña. Leading international experts were brought together to provide a review on the latest updates in the diagnosis and management of cardiomyopathies. Those meetings were organized by the Cardiology Department of the Complexo Hospitalario Universitario A Coruña (Dr. Manuel Penas and Prof. Alfonso Castro Beiras) and Prof. William J. Mckenna (University College London) and sponsored by the Spanish Society of Cardiology.

On September 21 and 22, 2023 we will resume, with the greatest enthusiasm, the organization of these scientific meetings, focusing this time on HYPERTROPHIC CARDIOMYOPATHY.

These last years we have seen extraordinary advances in the diagnosis and treatment of Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy. We aim to highlight how genetic understanding of Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (and its geno-phenocopies: Amyloidosis and Fabry disease) has led to new therapeutics including gene therapy and novel pharmacological agents. Moreover, these new treatments have changed the therapeutic scenario and could relegate other invasive treatments, used until now, to a secondary role.

The format of the meeting will be based on short expert reviews combined with clinical cases that will open interesting discussions with the most prominent international leaders in these pathologies. We will have experts “from both sides of the Atlantic”: Argentina, Denmark, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, United Kingdom, USA, etc.) and we hope, of course, you are interested in coming to our meeting.

We look forward to seeing you in A Coruña!
