BACKGROUND The infarction induced by alcohol septal ablation (ASA) may predispose to arrhythmia and sudden cardiac death (SCD). OBJECTIVE To assess survival, incidence of SCD after ASA and effects of ASA on the traditional risk factors (RFs) for SCD. DESIGN An observational cohort-study (follow-up 8.4±4 years). SETTING A dual-centre cohort. PATIENTS 470 consecutive patients (age 56±14 years) with obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) (1996-2010). INTERVENTIONS Clinically… CONTINUE READING
