2011 ACCF/AHA Guideline for the Diagnosis and Treatment of Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy: A Report of the American College of Cardiology Foundation/American Heart Association Task Force on Practice Guidelines

Practice guidelines are developed through a rigorous methodological approach  that mandates the review and consideration of the available medical literature.  Practice guidelines define the role of specific diagnostic and therapeutic  modalities, including noninvasive and invasive procedures, in the diagnosis and  management of patients with various cardiovascular diseases. These  evidence-based guidelines are intended to assist physicians in clinical decision making by describing a range of generally acceptable approaches for the diagnosis, management, or prevention of specific diseases or conditions. They attempt to define practices that meet the needs of most patients in most circumstances by categorizing the recommendations into a classification system. The development of practice guidelines are the domain of the ACCF/AHA Task Force on Practice Guidelines and are published in JACC and Circulation
