Abstract

Objective: The aim of this study was to determine the relationship between serum uric acid (UA) level and the predicted risk score for sudden cardiac death in 5 years (the HCM Risk-SCD), galectin-3 level, and positive fragmented QRS (fQRS) on electrocardiography (ECG) in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM).
