Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy is most common genetic cardiovascular disease with a prevalence of 1:500 and is transmitted as autosomal dominant condition with variable penetrance (1, 2). It can affect patients of all ages. The disease is characterised by LV hypertrophy most commonly septal and anterolateral free wall hypertrophy. Surgery poses a very high risk for these patients because of several complications (1, 2) that can occur in the perioperative and post operative period.
