Cardiomyopathy (hypertrophic, dilated, left ventricular non-compaction and arrhythmogenic cardio- myopathy) is primarily a genetic disease associated with an increased risk of potentially fatal cardiac arrhythmias and sudden death/cardiac arrest during exercise.
The diagnosis of cardiomyopathy is based on complete cardiac evaluation with detailed personal and family history, 12-lead ECG, echocardiogram, cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMRI), stress-test- ing, genetic testing and counseling. The differentiation between the physiological adaptation to exercise and cardiomyopathy is of the mutual importance.
In this review, we outline the latest recommendations published by the Sport Cardiology Section of the European Association of Preventive Cardiology (EAPC) on sport and leisure-time physical activity in patients with cardiomyopathy. It offers recommendations for practicing cardiologists and sport physi- cians managing athletes with cardiomyopathies and provides advice for safe participation in competitive sport at professional and amateur level, as well as in a leisure-time physical activity.
