OBJECTIVES This study sought to determine the impact of surgical myectomy on long-term survival in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). BACKGROUND Left ventricular (LV) outflow tract obstruction in HCM increases the likelihood of heart failure and cardiovascular death. Although surgical myectomy is the primary treatment for amelioration of outflow obstruction and advanced drug-refractory heart failure symptoms, its impact on long-term survival remains unresolved. METHODS Total and HCM-related… CONTINUE READING
