Myocardial mechanics explains the time course of benefit for septal ethanol ablation for hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.

Abstract

We hypothesized that the time course of left ventricular (LV) outflow tract gradient reduction during septal ethanol ablation for patients with symptomatic hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy is related to changes in myocardial mechanics. A total of 21 patients with hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy undergoing septal ethanol ablation were analyzed… (More)
