Inhibition of the Renin Angiotensin System With Losartan in Patients With Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy
INHibition of the Renin Angiotensin System in Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy and the Effect on Ventricular Hypertrophy - a Randomized Intervention Trial With Losartan.

Objective The objective of the study is to assess the structural and functional cardiac effects of treatment with losartan in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM).

Design The study is a randomized, placebo‐controlled, double‐blinded trial. The follow‐up period is 12 months. 130 patients with HCM will be included in predefined subgroups. Genotype positive relatives with borderline hypertrophy (> 13 mm) will also be included. Data on individuals with borderline hypertrophy will be analysed separately from the rest of the cohort.

Primary outcome Ventricular hypertrophy assessed as left ventricular mass and maximal wall thickness.
